Political Rebellion: Causes, outcomes and alternatives by Ted Robert Gurr

This volume comprises key essays by Ted Robert Gurr on the causes and consequences of organized political protest and rebellion, its outcomes and strategies for conflict management.

From the Castro-inspired revolutionary movements of Latin America in the 1960s to Yugoslavia's dissolution in ethnonational wars of the 1990s, and the popular revolts of the Arab Spring, millions of people have risked their lives by participating in protests and rebellions. Based on half a century of theorizing and social science research, this book brings together Gurr's extensive knowledge and addresses the key questions surrounding this subject:

- What grievances, hopes and hatreds motivated the protesters and rebels?

    - What did they gain that might have offset myriad deaths and devastation?

      - How effective are protest movements as alternatives to rebellions and terrorism?

        -What public and international responses lead away from violence and toward reforms?

          The essays in the volume are updated and are organized around the evolving themes of the author's research, including theoretical arguments, interpretations and references to the evidence developed in his empirical research and case studies. The concluding essays bring theory and evidence to bear on the past and future of political violence in Africa.

          This book will be of much interest to student of rebellion, political violence, conflict studies, security studies and IR.
