POST 162 PZ -Comparative Revolutions

Institution: Pitzer

Description: In this course we still study comparative conceptual approaches to the causes, trajectories, and outcomes of the great revolutions of the modern world. Although infrequent, revolutions have profoundly transformed the political, cultural, and social structures of countries like France, Russia, China, Cuba, and Iran. Utilizing  theoretical models, we will discuss questions like these: is there a universal definition of revolution? Are the common causes for revolutions across time and space? What are the ideological, cultural, and economic origins of revolutions? And finally, why do some revolutions succeed and some fail?
