Revolutions

Revolution (Latin: revolutio, “a turnaround”) is a rudimentary and relatively unforeseen change in political power and political organization. It occurs when the population rebels against the government, typically due to political incompetence. As a historical process, “revolution” refers to a movement, often violent, to overthrow an old regime and effect and bring a complete change in the fundamental institutions of society. The term is used by kinship in such expressions as the Industrial Revolution, where it refers to a quintessential and extreme change in economic relationships and technological conditions. A challenge to the established political order and the eventual establishment of a new order radically different from the preceding one is constituted by a revolution. From ancient Greece to the European Middle Ages the concept of revolution was seen as a very destructive force.

 

The idea of revolution was originally related to the Aristotelian notion of cyclical alterations in the forms of government; it now implies a fundamental departure from any previous historical pattern. A revolution constitutes a challenge to the established political order and the eventual establishment of a new order radically different from the preceding one. The great revolutions of European history, especially the Glorious (English), French, and Russian revolutions, changed not only the system of government but also the economic system, the social structure, and the cultural values of those societies. Revolution in social and political science are a major, sudden, and hence typically violent alteration in government and in related associations and structures. The term is used by analogy in such expressions as the Industrial Revolution, where it refers to a radical and profound change in economic relationships and technological conditions.

 

The Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle (384–322 BC) described two types of political revolution:

  1. Complete change from one constitution to another
  2. Modification of an existing constitution

 

Revolutions in India marked the beginning of a completely new epoch in various socio-economic fields like agriculture, petroleum etc.
