Social Movements, Political Violence, and the State: A Comparative Analysis of Italy and Germany
Donatella della Porta, Della Porta Donatella, Professor of Political Science and Political Sociology Donatella Della Porta, Sidney George Tarrow
Cambridge University Press, Sep 29, 1995 - Political Science - 270 pages
This book presents empirical research on the nature and structure of political violence. While most studies of social movements focus on single-nation studies, Donatella della Porta uses a comparative research design to analyze movements in two countries--Italy and Germany--from the 1960s to the 1990s. Through extensive use of official documents and in-depth interviews, della Porta is able to explain the actors' construction of external political reality, and to build a theory on political violence that synthesizes the various interactions among political actors.
