An examination of the ways in which revolutions have transformed the world.
Revolutionary movements have shaped the world we live in. This paper explores these movements, providing students with an understanding of what drives popular uprisings and how revolutionary change has shaped the modern world. This understanding will be developed through case studies of particular revolutions, such as the French, Russian and Chinese Revolutions.
The paper is essential for students majoring in History, and complements studies in a wide range of subjects, including law, politics, psychology, anthropology, and sociology.
