On Wednesday 30 October Dr. George Lawson (LSE) will give a talk at Eyckhof1 001A between 3-5pm. The talk will be based on Dr. Lawson's recently published book 'Anatomies of Revolution’ (Cambridge University Press). Broadly speaking, Lawson works on the relationship between history, theory and International Relations, with a particular interest in 'global historical sociology'. 

Anatomies of Revolution

Recent years have seen renewed interest in the study of revolution. Spurred by events like the 2011 uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East, the rise of Islamic State, the emergence of populism, and recent protests in Hong Kong, Iraq, Algeria and Sudan, a new age of revolution has generated considerable interest. Yet, even as empirical studies of revolutions are thriving, there has been a stall in theories of revolution. Anatomies of Revolution offers a novel account of how revolutions begin, unfold and end. By combining insights from international relations, sociology, and global history, it outlines the benefits of a 'global historical sociology' of revolutionary change, one in which international processes take centre stage. Featuring a wide range of cases from across modern world history, this is a comprehensive account of one of the world's most important processes.
