Summary
"Resistance and Rebellion: Lessons from Eastern Europe explains how ordinary people become involved in resistance and rebellion against powerful regimes. The book shows how a sequence of causal forces - social norms, focal points, rational calculation - operates to drive individuals into roles of passive resistance and, at a second stage, into participation in community-based rebellion organization. By linking the operation of these mechanisms to observable social structures, the work generates predictions about which types of community and society are most likely to form and sustain resistance and rebellion." "The empirical material centers around Lithuanian anti-Soviet resistance in both the 1940s and the 1987-1991 period. Using the Lithuanian experience as a base line, comparisons with several other Eastern European countries demonstrate the breadth and depth of the theory." "The book contributes to both the general literature on political violence and protest and the theoretical literature on collective action."--Jacket
