Abstract:This collective volume brings together a broad range of protest contexts in twelve chapters, divided into three parts. The case studies deal with such diverse subjects as the formation of Maroon societies in the early colonial period, female mobilization in authoritarian contexts, urban youth culture, trade unionism, gay rights activists, electoral wars and violence in urban areas, Boko Haram. Sometimes popular protest is expressed through religion (Islam as well as Christianity), often by young people.
