This is a substantive look into the events and conditions that predate a revolutionary movement in a state, how actors and revolutionary vanguards come to be, and ultimately how equilibrium is restored in society. The book tends to be verbose and pedantic, but since this grew from the man’s doctoral thesis, it is certainly forgiveable.
My personal experience is that each chapter contains nuggets of insight into revolutions that can be charted in graph form given a historical example. It is difficult to wade through the chapters to find the nuggets, but certainly worth the ‘panning’.
Probably not for the casual reader.
