Description
"To the barricades!" The cry conjures images of angry citizens, turmoil in the streets, and skirmishes fought behind hastily improvised cover. History and sociology professor Mark Traugott charts the origins, development, and diffusion of a uniquely European tradition, tracing the barricade from its beginnings in the 16th century to its refinement in the insurrections of the long 19th century, until it came to symbolize a culture of revolution. Traugott finds that the barricade is more than a physical structure; it is part of a continuous insurrectionary lineage that features spontaneous collaboration even as it relies on recurrent patterns of collective action.

"Insurgent Barricades is a work that should have been written ages ago, filling a gaping hole in revolutionary studies."—The Historian

"Excavating a database of 150 barricades, large and small, successful and unsuccessful, Mark Traugott provides us with a natural history of the insurrectionary barricade—its physiognomy, its development, and its diffusion. From its origins in 16th-century Paris to its culmination in the 1848 revolution, and from France to all of Europe, this memorable book is a model of how history and social science can be creatively combined to demonstrate how a key element of modern contentious politics emerged and diffused."—Sidney Tarrow
