Revolution in the World of the Future

  • Peter Calvert
Part of the Key Concepts in Political Science book series (KCP)


The story of the course of the development of the concept of revolution given here has necessarily been brief. It is, after all, a study of a concept, not of individual persons and movements. Hence there are many aspects of those movements which have not been dealt with here, and they will not be. It is, however, important, before leaving the subject, to define our terms as exactly as we may, and to attempt to ascertain their strengths and limitations. In doing so, we shall have to take account of a number of related issues which are not strictly germane to the nature of revolution itself.
