About the Authors
  • Vince Boudreau compares strategies of repression and protest in post-war Burma, Indonesia and the Philippines because these alternative strategies shaped the social bases and opposition cultures available to dissidents and, in turn, influenced their effectiveness. He includes first-hand research as well as the the social movements' literature to consider the interactions between the regimes in the wake of repression, and the subsequent emergence of democracy. Boudreau offers a genuinely comparative study of dictatorship and resistance in South East Asia.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Quite often, it seems, a great idea is obvious -- but only after it is introduced by an innovative thinker. That the outcome of repression and resistance is conditioned by the case-specific context of the struggle and that therefore it is the interaction that we must investigate should be obvious to everyone after reading Boudreau's work. A brilliant study of dictatorship, resistance, and democratization..."-Robert Lawless, Journal of Third World Studies

    "a major study whose greatest strength is its ability to link forms of authoritarian rule (with a particular emphasis on authoritarians' ways of taking power and initial repression of society) with the subsequent development of opposition. For students of Southeast Asian politics and scholars generally interested in regime types, oppostion protest and social movements, this is truly a must read." - Mark R. Thompson, University of Erlangen-Nuernberg
