Revolutionary Struggles I: Cuba & Nicaragua
Political Revolution: seeks to transform the state, but not economic or social
strives (e.g. wars of independence.
First Generation Revolutions
Characterized by the tensions surrounding the transition from feudalism from
capitalism + by class struggle. Examples: French Revolution (1789), Chinese (1911),
Russian (1917), Mexican (1910).
Social Revolutionary Roles: Insurrection > Political Victory > Societal
Transformation
Theoretical Models
Class Conflict (Marxist): views revolution as movements driven by inherent class-
based conflict in society.
Features:
-Urban workers are the revolutionary class
-Exploitative nature of capitalism gives rise to political violence.
Political Conflict: (Charles Tilly, 1978) Views revolutions as the struggle for political
power between those who are excluded from the polity (challengers) + those who are
in power (members).
Features:
-Gradual mobilization of challengers
-A rapid increase in numbers of supporters.
-Government unable to completely suppress the challengers
-Establishment of control over part of the government apparatus
-A struggle to maintain or expand that control by challengers
-Victory o defeat of challengers
-Reimposition of government control
Structural Model: (Theda Skocpol, 1979). Views revolution as the result of the
