    Dissatisfied with the compartmentalization of studies concerning strikes, wars, revolutions, social movements, and other forms of political struggle, McAdam, Tarrow, and Tilly identify causal mechanisms and processes that recur across a wide range of contentious politics Critical of the static, single actor models including their own that have prevailed in the field, thDissatisfied with the compartmentalization of studies concerning strikes, wars, revolutions, social movements, and other forms of political struggle, McAdam, Tarrow, and Tilly identify causal mechanisms and processes that recur across a wide range of contentious politics Critical of the static, single actor models including their own that have prevailed in the field, they shift the focus of analysis to dynamic interaction Doubtful that large, complex series of events such as revolutions and social movements conform to general laws, they break events into smaller episodes, then identify recurrent mechanisms and proceses within them Dynamics of Contention examines and compares eighteen contentious episodes drawn from many different parts of the world since the French Revolution, probing them for consequential and widely applicable mechanisms, for example, brokerage, category formation, and elite defection The episodes range from nineteenth century nationalist movements to contemporary Muslim Hindu conflict to the Tiananmen crisis of 1989 to disintegration of the Soviet Union The authors spell out the implications of their approach for explanation of revolutions, nationalism, and democratization, then lay out a general program for study of contentious episodes wherever and whenever they occur.

    1. J.M. Hushour

      A welcome theoretical rebound from decades of ism-ism, but one which still suffers from some problems. Like any good, wanna-be iconoclastic works DoC can't quite break away from what it is mired in. The authors can hardly be faulted for that, historiographical and social science tropes and theoretical crap-shoots are such a part of academia today that it is difficult to not address them. Again, I insist that we start afresh with a Cartesian sort of sloughing off of everything and start fresh, bu [...]

      Kavramlaştırmalar genel olarak iyi ama bazı yerlerde çok karmaşık bir dil kullanmışlar. Örnek olaylar faydalıydı. Ayrıca bkz: Sosyal bilimlerde ABD ekolü ve her şeyi şemalara, şekillere dökme merakı. :) Yeni Toplumsal Hareketleri açıklamak için kurdukları şemayı nereye koysan iş görür. Her olaya uyarlarsın. Ama açıklayıcılığı ne derece güçlü olur bilemedim. Her şeyi açıklayan ama aslında hiçbir şeyi derinlemesine açıklayamayacak bir yöntem kurmuşla [...]

      Toplumsal hareketlerin nasıl bileşenlere sahip olduğuna dair 'resource mobilization' teorisinin sosyal bilimlerdeki son gelismelerle güncellenmiş bir versiyonu. Bazı tespitler ve kavramlaştırmalar iyi, ama yazarlar lafı çok uzatıyor. Çok basit anlatılabilecek mekanizma, süreç ve episod kavramları anlamsız biçimde karmaşıklaştırılmış, gereksiz akademizme gidilmiş. Zengin kaynakçası faydalı.
