the key problem with her work is that, in effect, she is claiming that the only
revolutions that have an acceptably “constitutional” outcome are essentially those
that did not involve social revolutions in the first place, because they are simply
correcting an oppressive deviation from an existing political norm.This normative
approach may explain her reluctance to discuss the american Civil war, since,
whatever else one may wish to say about it, was far more obviously “social” than

And we sat there, and there were no revolutions. Revolts, yes, but how many
revolutions were there, good revolutions? French? American? Russian? Cuban?
Four, five? We need a good revolution to drink to. And what a noble action a
revolution. Every poet dreams of overthrowing the government. No government is
ever good. SHORS is a memory of a revolution. Poetry. Like a Western. The basic
heroic patterns—sacrifice, pathos, disorder of a revolution. Not a war. Only

John Foran (1997a), using only a slightly less restrictive definition, lists thirty-one
revolutions occurring merely in the Third World since 1900. It we extend the
definition to cover not only revolutions but also revolutionary movements, the
Encyclopedia of Political Revolutions (Goldstone 1998c) lists over 150 cases
around the world since the sixteenth century. Studies not merely using cases of
revolution, but counting all years during which particular countries experience
mass political ...

Peasant revolts, grain riots, strikes, social movements, coups, and civil wars thus
all can arise in the course of revolutions and are important constituent elements
of revolutionary struggles. Nevertheless, a revolution is something distinct from
any of these alone. What gives revolutions their distinctive role in history and in
the popular imagination is that only revolutions combine all the elements of
forcible overthrow of the government, mass mobilization, the pursuit of a vision of
social ...

Recent history is full of such revolutions; the toppling of Greek generals or the
disposal of the Franco or Salazar legacies offer the most obvious examples. It is
not against revolutions like these, however, that the charge of parricide is lodged.
Indeed, were an act of parricide to happen in their course it could only be seen as
irrelevant to the 'logic of the revolution' - a step motivated by sibling rivalry, or
caused by the regrettable temporary deregulation and brutalization of public life
in the ...

Real revolutions don't arrive at high noon with marching bands and coverage on
the 6:00 P.M. news. Real revolutions arrive unannounced in the middle of the
night and kind of sneak up on you.” – Al Ries & Jack Trout “No one can predict
the future, not even a sophisticated reporter for the Wall Street Journal. The only
revolutions you can predict are the ones that have already started. Did anyone
predict the overthrow of communism and the Soviet Union? Not really. It was only
