About the Authors
  • Why do some individuals participate in risky, anti-regime resistance whereas others abstain? The Revolution Within answers this question through an in-depth study of unarmed resistance against Israeli rule in the Palestinian Territories over more than a decade. Despite having strong anti-regime sentiment, Palestinians initially lacked the internal organizational strength often seen as necessary for protest. This book provides a foundation for understanding participation and mobilization under these difficult conditions. It argues that, under these conditions, integration into state institutions - schools, prisons and courts - paradoxically makes individuals more likely to resist against the state. Diverse evidence drawn from field research - including the first, large-scale survey of participants and non-participants in Palestinian resistance, Arabic language interviews, and archival sources - supports the argument. The book's findings explain how anti-regime resistance can occur even without the strong civil society organizations often regarded as necessary for protest and, thus, suggest new avenues for supporting civil resistance movements.

    • Focuses on the puzzle of individual participation in unarmed resistance to add important micro-foundations to the growing literature on nonviolent resistance
    • Explains participation in unarmed resistance among organizationally weak groups previously thought to lack the capacity for protest in order to expand our understanding of the conditions under which anti-regime protest will occur
    • Uses an integrative, mixed-method design, including the first large-scale survey of participation in Palestinian resistance and a wealth of other original data, which will appeal to both quantitative and qualitative scholars
