Description

Popular revolution has forged global superpowers, shaken empires, brought a halt to oppression, upended social and political divisions, established the first independent black nation and given birth to legacies, ideologies and revolutionary idols that have had a profound impact on the state of today's world. Viva La Revolution! examines 30 of the most influential revolutions from across history. Arranging them thematically, the book explores the defining characteristics of popular revolutions and their unique and lasting power. Reaching back into history, the book brings the story of revolution up to date with discussions of major popular uprisings including the American, Russian and French revolutions, and a strong focus on contemporary events from the Colour Revolutions of the mid-2000s to the Arab Spring of 2011. Structured around six key themes, the book gives the story of each revolution, its context and its legacy. A perfect introduction to revolutions both for the readers of military history and current affairs, as well as a younger readership inspired by the revolutionary fervour of 2011, Viva La Revolution! is an original history of the world in revolt and an insightful exploration of the compelling nature of people power.
