Language: English . Brand New Book. The events in eastern Europe in 1989 were largely unexpected. The extent of the transformation of the socities subject to the cataclysmic events of that year are still far from clear. The papers in this volume present an analysis of revolution and counter-revolution in a variety of settings. It is hoped that some of the arguments set out here may help academics and politicians come to a just evaluation of events of this nature in our own time. N° de réf. du libraire AAH9780631178163
Synopsis : 1989 was one of the great Years of Revolution in history, and itwas also the anniversary of many famous revolutions. As the worldcommemorated the two hundredth anniversary of the FrenchRevolution, startling changes were occuring in an Eastern Europewhose political map had been drawn in the aftermath of the SecondWorld War, the revolutionary consequences of which could hardly beimagined at its outbreak fifty years before in 1939.
Although few of us can have expected to see the revolutionarychanges of 1989 in our lifetime, it remains to be seen whetherhistory will judge all of the upheavals in Eastern Europe as?revolutions?, or whether some will be categorized in latercenturies as ?revolts?, ?coups?, ?failed revolutions?, or indeed?counter?revolutions?.
The distinguished contributors to this volume, published in theWolfson College Lectures series, enjoy the advantage of historicalperespective regarding past revolutions and counter?revolutions.Their papers present a wide?ranging analysis both of the conceptsof revolution and counter?revolution, and of particular upheavalsof vastly different character.
