(p.209) Chapter Nine Conclusions
Regimes and Repertoires

Charles Tilly

University of Chicago Press

This chapter summarizes the key points and conclusions that were discussed previously in this book. The different chapters have shown amply that contentious repertoires differ dramatically from one type of regime to another. Both governmental capacity and extent of democracy strongly affect the ways that people make collective claims on each other and how authorities respond to those claims. It also demonstrated how new arena, with international institutions and multinational corporations, promises to generate new forms of contentious politics. The location of a regime within the capacity-democracy space strongly influences its rulers' approach to generating and controlling contentious politics. Repertoires and episodes are causally coherent in the sense that systematic regularities across time and place govern their existence, change, and variation. In general, this book has concentrated on determining the causes that belong to change and variation in the organization of national regimes.
