Reflections on Revolutions
The collapse of the Soviet Union ended one of the most powerful and long-lasting non-democratic revolutionary regimes in modern history, but the end of Soviet-style revolution has not meant the end of revolution altogether. Religious fundamentalist, extremist nationalist, and democratic revolutions have occurred in various parts of the world since the Cold War. Since much of the theoretical literature on revolutions examines either the "great" revolutions or the Marxist-Leninist revolutions in Third World countries, a re-examination of revolution in the post-Cold War era is crucial. Mark N. Katz rereads important works on revolutions to cull concepts that are still relevant and update ideas that have changed since their publication.
