  • Very Successful Theory Of Revolution
    625 words
    A revolution can be defined as many things. And many historians have attempted it in the past. The most accurate depiction of a revolution, in my opinion, was written by Chalmers Johnson in the 1960's. He stated that a revolution takes place when the dysfunction of an existing government and its decay gives rise to another power group taking control. I believe this to be most accurate because if a government were not dysfunctional or decaying, then it would be most difficult for an inferior grou...

After such sacrifice, people were not rewarded for their devotion to the Czar. In December of 1825 in St. Petersburg, Russia, a gro...
