Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A international relations view of revolution, updated from the 1984 edition to reconsider the Russian Revolution of 1917-18 in light of events in 1991, to incorporate new thought on the French Revolution, and to reflect the shift within the discipline from state-centered theory to an emphasis on globalization, interdependence, and non-state actors. Considers the analysis of revolution, force in the international system, wars of national liberation, leadership and recruitment, three forms of revolutionary action, aid and intervention, and counterinsurgency.
