Author(s): Hank Johnston, Carol Mueller

In: Sociological Perspectives, Vol 44, No 3 (Fall), 2002, pp. 351-375

Examines three different forms of resistance: oblique spoken criticism; using officially approved organisations to promote muted collective opposition; and more open ‘dissidence’ – petitions, open letters, samizdat and contacting foreign press.
