Editorial Reviews

"Nebojsa Vladisavljevic offers us a powerful reminder that ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary things... For scholars of social movements, the book is engaging for its attention to political opportunity structures, networks, and framing in its analytical narrative of this revolutionary moment... [T]he book is most valuable for its masterful analysis, which pairs a state-centered approach with a critical eye towards elite power." —Elizabeth Essary, Pepperdine University "Recommended." —CHOICE
