- Cambridge University Press
Modern Revolutions has been the standard single-volume interpretation of its subject since its publication in 1972. Successive generations of students have welcomed Professor Dunn's lucid attempt to distinguish between ideological assessments of the desirability of eight contemporary revolutions and specific explanations of why they occurred. In this updated edition, Dunn assesses the major advances in the interpretation of revolutionary experience achieved since 1971, and considers the prospective impact of the revolutions of the past two decades on future revolutionary possibilities.

Jcvogan1, your short review of this book is right on target. Revolutions like divorces show that no two are the same.Writing now March 20111 we see each of these Mideastern revolutions is so very different even though all are Muslim countries. This is a difficult book to read, probably because the author made it difficult,but is very important to an important subject.
