系列 Cambridge studies in contentious politics
附註 "Growing protests in non-democratic countries are often seen as signals of regime decline. China, however, has remained stable in the face of surging protests. Why? This book highlights the important role of informal norms in shaping state-protester interactions, mitigating conflict, and explaining regime resilience amid mounting unrest. Drawing on an original nationwide dataset of protest and multi-sited ethnographic research, the book presents a bird's-eye view of Chinese contentious politics and illustrates the uneven application of informal norms across regions, social groups, and time. Through on-the-ground examinations of types of protests and their distinct indications for regime stability, Playing by the Informal Rules offers a novel theoretical framework suitable for monitoring the trajectory of political contention in China and beyond. Overall, this study sheds new light on contentious politics and authoritarian resilience and provides fresh perspectives on power, rules, legitimacy, and resistance in modern societies"-- Provided by publisher
