Revolution and the Transformation of Societies

By S. N. Eisenstadt
Free Press, 1978
348 pp. $15.95

Professor Eisenstadt's bold and important new study will find a place alongside his earlier comparative study of empires. New insights are provided about what types of traditional societies are - and are not - likely to undergo revolutionary change, and about those aspects of modernization that are particularly likely to produce abrupt political and social transformation.
