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.
