Description


The definitive, hugely influential comparative history of the English, American, French and Russian revolutions from a renowned American scholar. "Classic" and "famous," The Anatomy of Revolution examines the patterns and processes that all revolutions share. 

"Such is [Professor Brinton's] wit and historical knowledge that what might have become a syllogistic hash in lesser hands turns out to be a keen and perceptive exposition and , like a well-conducted seminar, sets the mind of the reader racing off on its owns." --The New Yorker

Brinton’s most famed work was his The Anatomy of Revolution (1938). During his lifetime he served as the president of both the American Historical Association and the Society for French Historical Studies.
