Students will find the writing engaging since the book moves at a rapid clip and never gets bogged down in historical minutia--which often puts students off. By putting compelling portraits of specific revolutions into a global context, Professor DeFronzo helps college students and general readers alike anticipate revolutions to come and contemplate ways to deal with them. A comprehensive bibliography of print and other sources greatly enhances the value of this indispensable book.

Richard Bohr, College of St. This book broadly conceptualizes factors that led to these ruptures, and analyzes their significance and legacies. Its compelling interpretations make it an outstanding choice both for classes on modern revolutions as well as for general readers. Katz, Professor of Government and Politics, George Mason University "Probably one of the major strengths of this text is the ability to present the issue of Islamic Fundamentalism in a coherent and scholarly format.

The author does a great job of presenting this material without sinking into a discussion on religion or American foreign policy. The inclusion of this chapter and the ability to use this topic to illustrate aspects of structural theories of protest really sets this text apart from those that concentrate on a specific form of protest or only analyze the typical cases used in studies of political protest.

Highly recommended.
