This volume investigates the relationship between protest, repression and political regimes in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa.

Considering how different political regimes use repression and respond to popular protest, this book analyzes the relationship between protest and repression in Africa and Latin America between the late 1970s and the beginning of the twenty first century. Drawing on theories, multi-method empirical analyses and case studies, the author of this volume sets out to investigate the reciprocal dynamics between protest and repression. Distinctive features of this volume include:

quantitative analyses that highlight general trends in the protest-repression relationship

case studies of different political regimes in Chile and Nigeria, emphasising the dynamics at the micro-level

an emphasis on the importance of full democratization in order to reduce the risk, and intensity, of intra-state conflict

Focusing on political regimes in different areas of the world, Protest, Repression and Political Regimes will be of vital interest to students and scholars of conflict studies, human rights and social movements.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Protest, Repression and Political Regimes presents a stimulating and highly readable analysis of the dynamic relationship between government violence and political protest. Carey's findings should be vitally important to states and civil society alike, and they provide important information in understanding how political violence might be contained and perhaps avoided altogether.

Mark Gibney, Belk Distinguished Professor, Univeristy of North Carolina-Asheville, USA

This multi-level analysis of the protest-repression nexus is a welcome addition to our understanding of the conditions under which contentious politics within nations does or does not escalate to that most deadly of forms of contention: civil war.

T. David Mason, Johnie Christian Family Professor of Peace Studies, University of North Texas, USA

Sabine Carey has written a well researched and thoughtful book on the relationship between political dissent and political repression. We generally understand that there must be a relationship between these different "ends" of political behavior, but Carey brings the arguments together with evidence in a comprehensive treatment. Presenting compelling evidence and arguments well grounded in the literature, this book should help shape future scholarship on how collective behaviors by the ruled interact with the political behaviors by the rulers.

Professor Patrick Regan, Department of Political Science, Binghamton University, USA
