About this title

Synopsis:

The rise of Islamic Fundamentalist revolutionary movements, the conflict in Iraq, the surge of leftist political movements in Latin America led by Venezuela's example, and updates of the chapters on Russia, China, Vietnam, Cuba, Nicaragua, Iran, and South Africa are some of the main features of this updated edition of Revolutions and Revolutionary Movements. With crucial insights and indispensable information concerning modern-day political upheavals, the third edition of this widely used book provides a representative cross section of many of the most significant revolutions of the modern era. Students can trace the historical development of eight revolutions using a five-factor analytical framework. Attention is devoted to clearly explaining 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, and the War on Terror; ten orienting maps are provided, and summary and analysis sections, suggested readings, chronologies, and updated lists of documentary resources with purchase or rental sources complete each presentation.

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.
