Summary
Through a diverse array of case studies from countries around the world, Popular Contention, Regime, and Transition places the Arab Spring uprisings in comparative perspective, demonstrating the similarities and parallels between contentious events in democratic and authoritarian-like regimes. By analyzing factors such as the set of initial conditions involved in the protest, prospects of contention, and forms of protest, the volume generates powerful insights into the impetus, dynamics, and consequences of contention in all contexts
