    1 thought on “Revolutions and Revolutionary Movements”

    1. I assigned this to my students and then read it, which isn’t very professional. Great way to grab some twentieth century history. Lots of detail but the five part theory of revolutions at the beginning helps hold it all together. Defronzo clearly assigns the success of failure of revolutions to outside powers, and for the last 25 years it’s been US power that has decided whether a revolution succeeds or fails. Clear perspective in favor of socialist revolutions but otherwise a useful and sch [...]

    2. While it is an easy read and I didn't feel like the author was trying to impress me with his vocabulary like most college level books, this author is extremely friendly towards communism and gives a very biased perspective that makes look like sunshine and roses. 20 million people died during the Great Leap Forward but you would never know that reading this book

    3. Book gives a brief history and context to many revolutions around the world. People who would like to gain a great understanding of recent history would find this book very helpful in understanding the world as it is today. As mentioned in the description it covers China, Iran, etc. The book can be easily read one chapter at a time, each one covering a different revolution.

    4. The author's insistence on separating revolutions into 3 categories is tiresome, If you can get past his attempt to be noteworthy, this is an excellent resource to learn all that has occurred in the world since Hitler took himself out of the gene pool and opened the door for the U.S. and now China to overtake Europe as chief exploiters and corruptors of all that is good in the third world.

    5. Accomplishes its mission -- summarizing 20th century revolutionary movements -- but details are scarce and it won't teach much to people already acquainted with the material.

    6. Works well for a more advanced undergraduate course. His analytical framework is easy to grasp and apply to the different case studies. I just wish he had included the Mexican Revolution.

    7. This book surveys 16 modern revolutions and puts them in historical and sociological context. Very insightful read.
