"This groundbreaking book probes the ways in which two capitalist superpowers, Great Britain and the United States, reacted to the momentous challenge of revolution that emerged during the early years of this century. The revolutions that inflamed Mexico in 1910, China in 1911, and Russia in 1917 all occurred within the same period of upheaval that culminated in the Great War in Europe. Yet no previous study has treated these revolutions under one cover or assessed their collective impact on the Western democracies with such precision and insight." -- Book Jacket
