Item description for Politics and Protest by Patrick Reilly...
Social movements are not created in a vacuum. The nature of the political system in which social movements operate influences the strategies chosen by leaders. The question becomes why do some leaders chose to remain peaceful, working through the existing political structure and why do some choose to become violent? In systems that have an independent judiciary, numerous electable ideologies and a federal system of government leaders of social movements are encouraged to work through the system to accomplish their goals. In systems that do not have these characteristics, social movements must work outside the system, often times aiming to destroy the existing political system in the process. Achieving their goals is not possible in the current environment. This book is a closer examination of those dimensions, through a comparative case study of the African-American Civil Rights movement in the United States and the Catholic Civil Rights movement in Northern Ireland.

Politics and Protest Mar 3, 2008
Reilly provides an insightful synthesis of two complex social movements with a comparative approach that offers a valuable perspective.
Insightful and timely Feb 27, 2008
Reilly's analysis of the intersection between political structures and mass protest takes a topic that is usually dry and abstract and presents in a captivating and insightful manner. Through the illustrations of the African-American civil rights struggle and the movement for civil rights for Roman Catholics in Northern Ireland, Reilly captures the essence why some political structures are able to sustain themselves in the face of protest, while others collapse. Especially in the modern era, with increasingly influential quasi-democratic states, this is a pertinent topic.
