The relationship between regime change and contentious politics is complex, contingent, and variable. The book seeks to explain their mutual influence. It also proposes a dynamic causal account of regimes and political contention. It reports the struggle that occurred in Peru from 1989 to 2003 as consequences of more general regularities in the interplay between regimes and contentious politics. Struggles to acquire or retain governmental power involve contentious politics. Moreover, the chapter explains how connections between regimes and contention work. Furthermore, it concentrates on asking how and why political contention varies from one regime type to another, and how contention interacts with movement from regime to regime. The chapter addresses how regime variation and change shape the ways in which people make consequential collective claims: their contentious politics. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in this book is given.
