Summary
"From the author of The Hinge Factor and The Weather Factor comes a new look at the history of revolution, at the people and events that brought wrenching, often enduring - and always bloody - change to countries and societies almost overnight." "Using historical texts and eyewitness accounts, Durschmied analyzes a broad range of revolutions and revolts over the last two hundred years. In doing so, he asks the question: what do revolutions - almost always made in the name of freedom - really change? Unlike the American Revolution, which is the counterexample to those presented in this book, few revolutions are spared the harsh reality that most devour their own children."--BOOK JACKET
