(p.225) Conclusion
The politics of betrayal

Ashley Lavelle

Manchester University Press

Renegades are omnipresent figures throughout political history. They differ in kind rather than in substance: the circumstances and examples vary from period to period, but the essence of the renegade – the one time radical opponent of the system who negotiates a rapprochement with existing political-economic institutions – stays largely the same. This chapter summarises the arguments and evidence presented and reasserts the need for the importance of both structure and agency in understanding the phenomenon of renegacy.
