From the Back Cover:

With crucial insights and indispensable information concerning modern-day political upheavals,Revolutions and Revolutionary Movements provides a representative cross section of the most significant revolutions of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In this widely used text, students can trace the historical development of eleven revolutions using a five-factor analytical framework. Author James DeFronzo clearly explains 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, the War on Terror, and post Cold War contention among the U.S., the European Union, the Russian Federation and China. This revised and updated fifth edition includes a new chapter on the Arab Revolution from its beginning in December 2010 to the present. Multiple orienting maps, summary and analysis sections, and chronologies provide context for students, while suggested readings and documentary resources encourage further exploration.

"The strengths, in my view, stem from the clear chronological overview that Defronzo provides of revolutionary movements and also the theoretical analysis he provides at the beginning as to the key factors which often precipitate revolutionary upsurges. He synthesizes a lot of scholarship on the topic and makes it accessible to undergraduates."
Jeremy Kuzmarov, University of Tulsa

"The book’s strength lies in its sweeping historical survey of the most significant revolutions in the twentieth century. It is, by far, the most comprehensive in its coverage of cases and demonstrates the comparative method quite well."
Michael Cairo, Transylvania University

James DeFronzo is emeritus faculty of sociology at the University of Connecticut. His books includeThe Iraq War: Origins and Consequences (Westview Press) and the award-winning three-volume encyclopediaRevolutionary Movements in World History, now available in more than 60 nations on six continents around the globe.
