Editorial Reviews


"Quite often, it seems, a great idea is obvious -- but only after it is introduced by an innovative thinker. That the outcome of repression and resistance is conditioned by the case-specific context of the struggle and that therefore it is the interaction that we must investigate should be obvious to everyone after reading Boudreau's work. A brilliant study of dictatorship, resistance, and democratization..."-Robert Lawless, Journal of Third World Studies

"a major study whose greatest strength is its ability to link forms of authoritarian rule (with a particular emphasis on authoritarians' ways of taking power and initial repression of society) with the subsequent development of opposition. For students of Southeast Asian politics and scholars generally interested in regime types, oppostion protest and social movements, this is truly a must read." - Mark R. Thompson, University of Erlangen-Nuernberg

Book Description

Vince Boudreau's book compares strategies of repression and protest in post-war Burma, Indonesia and the Philippines. These alternative strategies shaped the social bases and opposition cultures available to dissidents, and in turn influenced their effectiveness. The author balances first-hand research with the social movements literature to consider the interactions between the regimes and their societies in the wake of repression, and with the subsequent emergence of democracy. This is a thought-provoking book, which offers a genuinely comparative study of dictatorship and resistance in South East Asia.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Boudreau's theory is simple: dictators and protesters adapt strategies according to their opportunities and contexts. At times, the theory seems perhaps a bit too broad to make predictions, but Boudreau's application of the theory to Indonesia, the Philippines, and Burma helps put these authoritarian systems in a new light. In Indonesia, the New Order massacred Communists because they had networks throughout the countryside, where the army was relatively weak. By contrast, Burma's military focused on urban student protests because they represented the only viable element of democratic politics, whereas the army had strong anti-insurgent capabilities in the countryside. Marcos' regime wavered partly because of his lack of elite support and partly because Marcos came from the same social class as many of the protesters. Definitely worth reading for students of Southeast Asian studies.
