Sidney Tarrow (PhD, Berkeley, 1965) is the Emeritus Maxwell M. Upson Professor of Government at Cornell University.  He is a leading scholar in the field of social movements and contentious politics and is currently working on a book tentatively titled War, States, and Contention.

This lecture is based on Tarrow's new book project in which he traces in a series of historical and internationally comparative chapters the complex and, at times, seemingly paradoxical, relations between war, rights and contention from Cromwell's era to the present.
