520    "This study investigates the three main waves of political
       regime contention in Europe and Latin America. 
       Surprisingly, protest against authoritarian rule spread 
       across countries more quickly in the nineteenth century, 
       yet achieved greater success in bringing democracy in the 
       twentieth. To explain these divergent trends, the book 
       draws on cognitive-psychological insights about the 
       inferential heuristics that people commonly apply; these 
       shortcuts shape learning from foreign precedents such as 
       an autocrat's overthrow elsewhere. But these shortcuts had
       different force, depending on the political-organizational
       context. In the inchoate societies of the nineteenth 
       century, common people were easily swayed by these 
       heuristics: Jumping to the conclusion that they could 
       replicate such a foreign precedent in their own countries,
       they precipitously challenged powerful rulers, yet often 
       at inopportune moments -- and with low success. By the 
       twentieth century, however, political organizations had 
       formed. Their leaders had better capacities for 
       information processing, were less strongly affected by 
       cognitive shortcuts, and therefore waited for propitious 
       opportunities before initiating contention. As 
       organizational ties loosened the bounds of rationality, 
       contentious waves came to spread less rapidly, but with 
       greater success"--|cProvided by publisher
