On his book Protest Politics in Germany: Movements on the Left and Right since the 1960s

Cover Interview of July 15, 2009

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“A mosaic of German politics, with a focus on protest movements.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“Unpredictable and sometimes remarkable things happen in protest movements because of how actors respond to each other.”

On the second:

“Important innovations in protest methods, new political relationships, and policy solutions to public problems often begin at the local or regional level and trickle upward.”
