Explaining Revolutions from Below: East Germany in 1989
By Karl-Dieter Opp
This article appeared in the Summer 1998 issue of The Independent Review

Analysis of survey data tells us much more about the protesters’ actual attitudes than does Lohmann’s formal model, with its unrealistic assumptions and lack of empirical input.
