Caribbean Revolutions and Revolutionary Theory
An Assessment of Cuba, Nicaragua, and Grenada
- Published: August 2001
This volume re-examines the meaning of revolution as a useful concept in politics. It traces the history of the concept from its ancient beginnings, but especially in connection with the idea of progress since the French Revolution. More recent statements are examined as a prelude to arriving at a less deterministic, entrenched definition than has often been the case, but which retains the idea of revolution as a potential window and facilitator of change.
