Subjects covered include: * democracy and revolution from 1789 to 1989 * twentieth century revolutions and theories of revolution, including Marxism, modernization and structuralist theories * revolution in the "Third World" and the variable geometry of the paths to modernity * Islamic revolutions and modernity * the 1989 revolutions as "democratic revolutions" or "elite-led transitions" * globalization, the nation-state and revolution * empire and "democratic revolution" * network society and revolution * Islamic fundamentalism, international terrorism and revolution * democratic revolution as a new form of revolution * postmodern theories of revolution * new social movements, identities and new figures of revolution.
