Defining Documents in World History: Revolutions
Throughout history, there have been many notable revolutions; the greatest of which are often considered to be the English Revolution (1649), American Revolution (1776), French Revolution (1789), Russian Revolution (1917) and Chinese Revolution (1949). These and more helped shape the world as we know it, overthrowing defective governments and empowering citizens to stand up for what they believe in, through both peaceful and violent means.
These volumes explore how rebellions turned to revolutions, what led to those confrontations, and their many, long-lasting ramifications. Documents examined include historical reports, speeches, court cases, legislative debates, and more.
