Revolution: Theory, Theorists and Practice Book uri icon



  • This book is a collection of essays from the University of Colorado Boulder’s 2020 PSCI 3062 course chronicling revolutions, theorists, and their theories that have been influential since the 19th century till the present. With the set goal in mind to understand “Why man rebels?” and what key factors are universally present during a potential revolution these essays not only map out the structure of various theories and revolutionary events but also explore the symbiosis between the formulation of theories and the actual happenings during a revolution. Reading our book, one can find theorists spanning from Carl von Clausewitz and Karl Marx to Che Guevara and Chalmers Johnson. Revolution covered in our reading bridge between the more recognized revolts such as the French and Russian Revolution with the more novel events such as the Arab Spring and Euromaidan in Ukraine.
