Abstract:

In a period marked by growing fluidity between the West and the Communist nations, the role of revolution as an instrument of political and social change takes on an intense, possibly dangerous importance. Owing to the unacceptable risks of international war, revolutions in the less developed countries are increasingly taking the place of war as the main arena of great-power conflict. Thus, the attitudes and policies of the Communist countries toward revolution are of vital concern. In this book, thirteen specialists on Communist affairs consider how the Communists have used revolutions in the past, what they have deduced from their experience, and what prospects they hold for revolution in light of their ideological commitments. Originally published in 1964. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
