In this volume, a number of eminent historians, sociologists and political scientists who have spent their lives studying revolutionary processes reflect on the age of 20th century of revolution. They debate questions like: is the era of revolution over? What might the revolutions of the future look like? The face of transformative politics in the future and the directions of social change rest in large measure on the answers. A range of recent cases are taken up, from the intensely backward-looking movement of the Taliban in Afghanistan, to the magical revolution in progress in Chiapas.
