Abstract

In this paper it is argued that it is theoretically more useful to synthesize socio-psychological, political conflict and structural-determinist approaches to explaining rebellion than to choose among them. Taken in isolation, each model presents necessary, but theoretically insufficient, explanations of the conditions that precipitate armed rebellion. While relative deprivation provides the psychological impetus for collective action, organized groups which can focus discontent determine its activation. In addition, state power plays a key role in determining the impact of popular insurrection. -Authors
