It’s been a long-time coming, but I am at last holding copies of my book! Feels like the past is gifting me something into this weird present, but I’ll take it. @CUP_PoliSci @MariaSoleMarsh @USFPoliticsDept cambridge.org/core/books/pol… /1
2/ The book is a study of land and the process of electoral violence. Drawing on evidence from #Kenya’s 2007 election violence, I ask how political leaders organize violence & more so, why and when ordinary citizens participate.
3/ While many studies emphasize elite calculations, ethnic polarization, or institutional features of the state, I analyze #ElectionViolence as a joint production: a process of political mobilization requiring coordination between political leaders and ordinary citizens.
