This is an excellent study of four revolutions (English, American, French, and Russian) in an attempt to draw out features common to them all. Despite the dissimilarities of the pre-revolutionary societies in each instance, Brinton establishes a clear case for certain common stages in any revolution. Tellingly, his stages of revolution fit when applied to other revolutions. Radicals generally don't like this book because it lumps together "bad" revolutions (for radicals this means the American one) with "good" revolutions" (the Russian). Tough. Brinton's work has essentially defined this field, so anyone studying revolutions cannot afford to ignore the book. I've seen reviews by purported undergraduate college students slamming the book because Brinton doesn't write at a level they find easy to read. (All those long sentences! Paragraphs you have reread!! Words you have look up...) Brinton assumes his reader is an adult. My own thought is that those who can't handle Brinton's style are simply unprepared for college and are wasting their time (and their professors'), as well as the money of whoever is paying tuition.
