From the Back Cover:

Comprehensive and thought-provoking in approach, this book provides an in-depth analysis of the historical, political and social aspects of the concept of revolution through a series of 8 country case studies. It studies each revolution not merely as a short-term period or explosive developments, but as a prolonged process of political and social change.The Second Edition adds case studies of revolution in Iran and Mexico to those of Bohemia, England, France, Russia, Turkey, and China, and outlines a new typology of revolutions in the wake of the events of 1989-91 which brought a new challenge to the traditional understanding of the term revolution. Presents the revolutionary process as a sequence of ten to twelve stages -- forming a pattern characterized by shifts in the seat of power or in government policy. Examines the typical confrontations, shifts in alliances and other turning points within this process, and compares them in their historical context. Demonstrates that revolutions do not end with a restoration, but with a consolidation after which the issues that caused the revolution are no longer paramount.
