With crucial insights and indispensable information concerning modern-day political upheavals, the third edition of this widely used book provides a representative cross section of many of the most significant revolutions of the modern era. Students can trace the historical development of eight revolutions using a five-factor analytical framework. Attention is devoted to clearly explaining all relevant concepts and events, the roles of key leaders, and the interrelation of each revolutionary movement with international economic and political developments and conflicts, including World Wars I and II, the Cold War, and the War on Terror; ten orienting maps are provided, and summary and analysis sections, suggested readings, chronologies, and updated lists of documentary resources with purchase or rental sources complete each presentation."--Book cover."@en ;
