Experts on coups & popular uprisings, a thread for journalists & producers trying to figure this out:
1. @Ras_Karya, whose book Africa Uprising (coauthored with Adam Branch), is an excellent explanation of how popular uprisings lead to political change.
2. @naunihalpublic, who wrote THE best book on coups d'état of the 21st century.
3. Lisa Mueller of @Macalester, whose brilliant book shows how class politics drive protests.
4. @Fromagehomme & @fisheridd, whose excellent overview of how authoritarians take over, including through coups, is well worth your time, especially if you are new to this stuff.
Academics, who else would you suggest?
