About Anatomies of Revolution:
“Recent years have seen renewed interest in the study of revolution. Spurred by events like the 2011 uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East, the rise of Islamic State, and the emergence of populism, a new age of revolution has generated considerable interest. Yet, even as empirical studies of revolutions are thriving, there has been a stall in theories of revolution. Anatomies of Revolution offers a novel account of how revolutions begin, unfold and end. By combining insights from international relations, sociology, and global history, it outlines the benefits of a ‘global historical sociology’ of revolutionary change, one in which international processes take centre stage. Featuring a wide range of cases from across modern world history, this is a comprehensive account of one of the world’s most important processes. It will interest students and scholars studying revolutions, political conflict and contentious politics in sociology, politics and international relations.”
‘George Lawson gives us a new perspective on the sociology of revolutions in a masterwork that is destined to become the best ‘go-to’ book on revolutions for the 2010-20 decade!’
