How can we get inside popular collective struggles and explain how they work? Contentious Performances presents a distinctive approach to analyzing such struggles, drawing especially on incomparably rich evidence from Great Britain between 1758 and 1834. The book accomplishes three main things. First, it presents a logic and method for describing contentious events, occasions on which people publicly make consequential claims on each other. Second, it shows how that logic yields superior explanations of the dynamics in such events, both individually and in the aggregate. Third, it illustrates its methods and arguments by means of detailed analyses of contentious events in Great Britain from 1758 to 1834.

In Contentious Minds, Florence Passy and Gian-Andrea Monsch explain how cognitive and relational processes allow activists participate in and sustain their commitment to activism. Based on a wide array of survey and interview data with activists engaged in protest, volunteering and unions, they highlight how a commitment community develop shared values, identities, and meanings through interaction. The interplay of talk and ties enables stories and meanings to be constructed and exchanged, conveys worldviews and intentions that are modified through ongoing conversations, and reinforces and maintains commitment over time. Passy and Monsch's ambitious work brings the mind and culture back into the study of social movements and highlights the crucial role social networks play in constructing the communities and shared values that sustain commitment.

Revolutions, social movements, religious and ethnic conflict, nationalism and civil rights, and transnational movements: these forms of contentious politics combine in Charles Tilly's and Sidney Tarrow's Contentious Politics. The authors present a set of analytical tools and procedures for study, comparison, and explanation of these very different sorts of contention. Drawing on many historical and contemporary cases, the book shows that similar principles describe and explain a wide variety of struggles as well as many more routine forms of politics. This fully revised and updated edition explores some of the major contentious events that have taken place since the original book was published in 2007, including the Occupy movement in the United States, the campaign for free elections in the city of Hong Kong, insurrections against Middle Eastern dictatorships, and armed conflicts on the border of the former Soviet Union. Comprehensive and empirically rich, Contentious Politics, 2nd edition remains a valuable resource for developing a more nuanced understanding of modern social movements and political conflicts for students and scholars.

Who is remembering the German Democratic Republic, and how do they go about it? This volume of "contentious memories" brings together essays and critical responses in a look back at three aspects of GDR studies. It presents an opportunity for self-reflection on German Studies' past and ongoing engagement with the GDR and post-unification transformations. It seeks to evaluate old questions and raises new ones concerning the historical knowledge of GDR culture and our interpretations of it. Finally, it examines blindspots and self-deceptions of the past as well as those forming all too quickly in the present.

This dissertation gauges the influence of regions from EU decentralized member states on European policies. The ability of regions to shape EU decisions has been at the center of discussions on European integration theory and of EU politics for fifteen years now. By combining evidence from German, Italian, and Spanish federalism (and from two EU policy areas â?? audiovisual and cohesion), the author shows why and when understanding EU policies requires taking regional lobbying of the European Parliament and the Commission into consideration. This first attempt to combine the literature on "The Europe of the Regions" and on multi-level governance with policy analysis will be illuminating for scholars and practitioners interested in the EU decision-making process, as well as for those concerned with Europeanization. Dissertation.

"¿Cuál fue la capacidad de negociación de colectivos subordinados dotados de un discurso político propio frente a los poderes medievales? ¿Fueron éstos sensibles a las presiones desde abajo? Este libro explora las relaciones entre el discurso público y las prácticas de comunicación, crítica y movilización política de aquellos que se encuentran institucionalmente al margen del poder a fines de la Edad Media. Desde las tentativas de constituir una comunidad propia dotada de una voz con capacidad de influir en la toma de decisiones, a la politización ordinaria. Esto es, la existencia de un campo extrainstitucional, en el que lo político toma cuerpo y la legitimidad puede ser deconstruida en cualquier momento. Son variados los mecanismos que permiten la formulación de un discurso crítico, que nos desvela la existencia de verdaderas comunidades vinculadas por un imaginario polico compartido. Este discurso crítico nos permite asimismo postular la existencia de una Esfera Pública medieval, por más que fragmentaria, desequilibrada y difícil de aprehender, que sólo excepcionalmente se revela en nuestras fuentes, las más de las veces en momentos de crisis."--P. [4] of cover.
