To anyone who has been waiting (anyone?) — my latest book is now available at the terrific price of under $10 (even less for the Kindle edition).
Revolutions: A Very Short Introduction (published by Oxford University Press) examines how revolutions differ from other kinds of upheaval; why revolutions are so hard to predict and foresee but seem so inevitable in hindsight; and what are the normal trajectories that revolutions follow.
With coverage of historical revolutions from ancient Greece and Renaissance Italy up through the Arab Revolutions of 2011, all in just over 150 pages, it’s a quick tour of everything you wanted to know about revolutions, up-to-date through the election of President Hassan Rouhani in Iran and the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt.
I hope you enjoy it!
