Zachariah Mampilly is the author along with Adam Branch of Africa Uprising: Popular Protest and Political Change (Zed Press, 2015). Mampilly is Associate Professor of Political Science and Director of Africana Studies at Vassar College; Branch is assistant professor of political science at San Diego State University and a senior research fellow at the Makerere Institute of Social Research, in Kampala, Uganda.

Much of the Arab Spring took place in Africa, but little commentary connected those protests to the continent. In Africa Uprising, Mampilly and Branch unearth the connections between contemporary political protests in Africa and the long history of protest in various African countries. Building on the theoretical debates between Kwame Nkrumah and Franz Fanon, Africa Uprising uses cases studies from Nigeria, Uganda, and Ethiopia to explain how the third wave of African protests have unfolded.
