About this product
- DescriptionRevolution: Few terms have been as characteristic of the social, political, and intellectual history of the 19th and 20th century as this one. After the -French- and -Industrial Revolution- as well as the -academic and scientific- revolutions and the artistic vanguards from the end of the 19th century onwards, social conflicts have been deeply impregnated by the idea of revolution. -Revolution- was t only regarded in terms of a radical break with the old order swept away in an explosive act of emancipatory practice, but it has often been rejected as a senseless dissolution of all order and as a symptom of social decline. According to neo-conservative and neo-liberal circles, the era of political and social revolutions in world history has ended with the -revolutionary- collapse of state-socialist regimes in Central and Eastern Europe around 1989. Yet recently these diagses have been increasingly called into question, both in theory and in practice. -Revolution- has been set on the agenda again as a result of populist and revolutionary movements, the critique of neoliberalism, but also the new intellectual debates about strategies of the Left in a globalized capitalism.
