Needs to add understanding and summary of the role of multinational corporations in both sponsoring and suppressing revolutions. Needs to add understanding and summary of the role of criminal networks as substantive players in any and all revolutionary movements, not just whatever poster child the US Government wants to emphasize that day. Criminals, terrorists, revolutionaries, and white collar criminals all share the same smuggling and money-laundering spectrum of networks.

Dissident elite actualized in political movements 3. Unifying motivations 4. Severe political crisis 5. Permissive or tolerant world context. It is here that I get irritated.

This is a very superficial model, and one that does not reflect the difference between a precondition Somoza family abuse of the Nicaraguan population for decades and a precipitant a major natural disaster followed by the Somoza family trying to steal most of the aid being delivered. There is a useful discussion, particularly in relation to Iran, of how it modernized economically but not politically.

The contrast with Indonesia, Malaysia, and Turkey is worth studying further. The author treats films as a separate bibliographic contribution to the end of each chapter, with a full page or two of listings to complement the preceding bibliography of articles, books, and chapters.

This was a new and appreciated twist for me. Separately from the discussion of Islam the author points out that Nelson Mandela has to give up economic reform e.

I put the book down thoughtful--this was a good read for any level of reader, and certainly the best starting point I have seen for undergraduates. Latin America is about to enter a new era of leftist Presidents who are non-violent and staunchly against corruption.

If you like discovering new things about history, check out this great book.

Very interesting book! By Jen on Jan 11, I had to buy this book for school and really enjoyed reading it. It is very interesting to look at the differences and similarities between these movements.

Each of the movements is written in great detail and very easy to understand and analyze. Nothing is wrong with the book and I am satisfied. Will probably continue to order books. Intensely interesting and informative!! The book provides succinct yet fact-packed discussions on the origins and aftermaths of some of the most predominant revolutions of the 20th Century including Russia, China, Iran, and Cuba as well as several others.

As a former student of Dr. Defronzo prevails again A Customer on May 07, Defronzo has an uncanny knack of explaining the complexities of various revolutionary social movements on a very readable level. I highly recommend taking his course at Connecticut, if possible. However, this book is a must for understanding the contemporary political climate of the world. Informative and brief By Dufan on Jul 10, I came across this book while browsing on amazon one day.

Rented it from a local library. The book is an easy read if you have an interest in the movements discussed. The author briefly discusses the geography of each country at the beginning of each chapter followed by statistics and a very brief history of the countries only getting in depth when discussing the build up and revolution happening in each country.

No need to get bogged down in every little detail with this book. I have a firm grasp on the important history and background behind the countries discussed thanks to this book.

By Cheryl Wagner on Jan 16, text book.. By Icu on Jul 03, This book covers the major revolutions of the 20th century. It is a thick book so it more than mentions each one; therefore, the reader gets a relatively comprehensive perspective of the events, without drowning in information.

Excellent booK! By History Professor on Aug 27, Excellent basic survey. I have adopted this book for several semesters in a History of Non-Western Civilizations course. No other texts out there that give such a nice pre-modern survey and up to date discussion of current events. Simple yet sophisticated for a class. Furthermore, the author refused to look at the background that led up to revolts eg Hay Market Massacre and Johnson County Massacre Of course there is a Hollywood drama put in these films, but it should present a very good foundation to research further.

A Great Text on which to build! By David Ortiz Jr. It is one of the very few books that put revolutions in a comparative and historical context. It does not cover every revolution, but all of the major ones are there. It does not cover all of the theories about who revolutions get started, but the main concepts from the major theorists of revolutions are there. My students find it accessible, easy to follow, and informative.

It would take several books to do what this one does in one volume. Occasionally, the book is too general and slips into social science jargon, but it is not frequent and unobtrusive to the reading and flow of the text.

I lecture on what the book does not cover and offer additional nuance and specificity to what the book does cover. It is a nice partnership. I highly recommend this book to instructors in this field, historians of revolutions, and general readers interested in revolutionary effervescence. This particular edition is in a Paperback format.

It was published by Routledge and has a total of pages in the book. To buy this book at the lowest price, Click Here. Similar Books.
