This article discusses revolutionary movements and how they lead to a change of political regime.
Theda Skocpol observed that social revolutions have been rare but momentous occurrences in modern world history; from France in the s to Vietnam in midth century. Fifty years ago, nonmarital cohabitation was rare. In late 20th century, social revolution affected the relationship between men and women cohabiting, without the need of formal marriage; and between each individual gender too, resulting in the LGBT reforms. This kind of social revolution is more common today, in the 21st century, than some rare occurrences in the yesteryears. The cause of social revolution does not confine itself to political unrest, religious uprising, economic problem, human sexual preferences, but it is wide ranged even to cyber space innovations which have been revolutionary and have brought about changes to the society and the legal system at large.
Don't rely on these old notes in lieu of reading the literature, but they can jog your memory. As a grad student long ago, my peers and I collaborated to write and exchange summaries of political science research. I posted them to a wiki-style website. I cannot vouch for these notes' accuracy, nor can I even say who wrote them. If you have more recent summaries to add to this collection, send them my way I guess. Sorry for the ads; they cover the costs of keeping this online.

Description State structures, international forces, and class relations: Theda Skocpol shows how all three combine to explain the origins and accomplishments of social-revolutionary transformations. From France in the s to Vietnam in the s, social revolutions have been rare but undeniably of enormous importance in modern world history. States and Social Revolutions provides a new frame of reference for analyzing the causes, the conflicts, and the outcomes of such revolutions. And it develops in depth a rigorous, comparative historical analysis of three major cases: the French Revolution of through the early s, the Russian Revolution of through the s, and the Chinese Revolution of through the s. Believing that existing theories of revolution, both Marxist and non-Marxist, are inadequate to explain the actual historical patterns of revolutions, the author urges us to adopt fresh perspectives. Above all, she maintains that states conceived as administrative and coercive organizations potentially autonomous from class controls and interests must be made central to explanations of revolutions.

Our brief examination of the conditions underlying the political crises of the Meiji Restoration and the Prussian Reform Movement has tended to reinforce by contrast our central arguments about the causes of revolutionary political crises in France, Russia, and China. Bourbon France, Hohenzollern Prussia, Tokugawa Japan, Manchu China, and Romanov Russia - all became subject to military pressures from more economically developed nations abroad and all experienced in response societal political crises. Yet only France, Russia, and China were plunged into the upheavals of social revolution, while Prussia and Japan, relatively speaking, adapted speedily and smoothly to international exigencies through reforms instituted from above by autocratic political authorities. The different fates of these agrarian monarchical regimes faced with the challenges of adapting to the exigencies of international uneven development can be explained in large part by looking at the ways in which agrarian relations of production and landed dominant classes impinged upon state organizations - though it is also important to assess the severity of the pressures from abroad with which each regime had to cope. In Russia, the revolutionary crisis of autocratic rule and dominant class privilege was due to the overwhelming stress of World War I upon an early-industrializing economy fettered by a backward agrarian sector.

Health care, welfare, Social Security, employment programs--all are part of ongoing national debates about the future of social policy in the United States. In this wide-ranging collection of essays, Theda Skocpol shows how historical understanding, centered on governmental institutions and political alliances, can illuminate the limits and possibilities of American social policymaking both past and present. Skocpol dispels the myth that Americans are inherently hostile to social spending and suggests why President Clinton's health care agenda was so quickly attacked despite the support of most Americans for his goals.

Почему? - удивилась Сьюзан. - А если ему нужна помощь. Стратмор пожал плечами. - Отсюда я не в состоянии ему помочь - ему придется полагаться лишь на. А потом, я не хочу говорить по линии, не защищенной от прослушивания. Глаза Сьюзан расширились. - Как прикажете это понимать.
Он напал на. - Что.
Чатрукьян был совсем мальчишка. Ради всего святого, зачем вы это сделали. Чтобы скрыть свою маленькую тайну. Стратмор сохранял спокойствие. - И что же это за секрет. - Вы отлично знаете это. Это Цифровая крепость.
