The first edition of Why Men Rebel was released in 1970, following a decade of political unrest around the globe. Serious conflicts still exist in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia forty years later. Ted Robert Gurr gives us a fresh introduction to his seminal work by presenting it in the context of the research it influenced and current events. With its comprehensive, human-centered view of the factors that lead to political dissent and rebellion, Why Men Rebel is still incredibly relevant in today’s violent and unpredictable world. This book offers fresh perspective on current security issues by paying particular attention to the politics of group identity.
