Overview

For the first time, The Timechart History of Revolutions documents simultaneous conflicts through time, from 1190 BCE to the present day, displayed in a fully illustrated Timeline spanning five geographical regions: The Americas, Europe, Middle East & Asia, Africa, and Australia & Oceania. Following events vertically on the Timeline shows what was happening in different parts of the world at any one point in time, and, uniquely, illustrates the spread of revolution and rebellion from region to region. 

Fold-out flaps offer a close-up view of subjects mentioned on the Timeline, including Japanese Samurai warriors, weaponry, the role of the Church in revolution, propaganda, and terrorism. A world map locates all the major revolutions and civil wars through history, and more than 20 revolutions are broken out into detailed and fact-driven spreads. For every conflict featured, there are maps and source materials, event highlighters and illustrations, and short biographies of key personalities.

Although the rebellions against the Roman Empire seem a world apart from the cataclysmic revolutionary upheavals brought about during the transition to the “modern age” in France, America, Russia, and elsewhere, and those, in turn, a world apart from the Zapatista Army’s revolutionary activities of today in Chiapas, Mexico, there is a common link between all: the economic motivation to improve the lot of those who feel oppressed by “the system”. Time and again across the world we see how people have joined together to overthrow corrupt governments, often, in the process, losing sight of the idealism that originally drove them, andsetting into motion a feedback loop of continual violence and upheaval. Many other rebellions, however – while complex and multifarious in both their causes and consequences – do lead to reform, to better conditions for the poor, to greater freedom, representation, and self-determination.

The narrative of human history is one of continual conflict and change, and revolutions play a great part in that story. Some lead to victory for the oppressed, often at great cost, others to anarchy and confusion, still others to even greater loss of power. The causes have changed, naturally, with the course of history.  In their best form, today, revolutions and rebellions lead to greater freedom and independence for more people, and the ideals of self-rule and equal rights drive the brave forward to fight for change against the “powers that be”.  In addition to meaning an overthrow or structural change in society, the term revolution refers to a complete rotation, as in the earth’s revolution around the sun, and in that sense the word highlights an important corollary to the idealism it implies: the circular and cyclical nature of change.
