9780155003859: Revolutions: Theoretical, Comparative, and Historical Studies

Designed to function as a primary text or supplement for courses in political conflict, political sociology, or revolutions, this revised anthology contains up-to-the-minute coverage of the contemporary political climate. The inclusion of commentary and accounts of recent revolutions in Iran, Nicaragua, the Phillipines, China, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union illustrates changes in the character of revolutionary action. Features: * Two-part organization combines classic theories of revolution with historical and comparative case studies of revolutions. * Coverage of theory by leading scholars goes beyond that of competing texts that often present over-simplified synopses. * Edited by an award-winning expert on revolutions. * This edition includes new contributions by Daniel Chirot, Ted Robert Gurr, and Stephen M. Walt.
