ABSTRACT
Building from the theoretical literature, I posit here that repressors' reactions to perceived domestic threats in Argentina and Chile from the 1940s through the 1980s are determined in large part by four independent factors. incidence of collective political opposition. policy inertia, policy memory, and pervasive military control. The model works reasonably well in both countries Findings for the two latter, interactive factors in particular suggest a way that analysts can go beyond the typical additive approach to modeling state repression (repression as a function of factor X1 + factor X1 factor + Xi to include temporal interactive affects into their analyses. I argue that this approach presents a new and promising direction in our quest to understand the dynamic nexus between repressors and their opponents.
