How Revolutionary Were the Bourgeois Revolutions?
A historical defense of the concept of bourgeois revolution, from the sixteenth century to the twentieth.

In this panoramic historical analysis, Neil Davidson defends a renovated concept of bourgeois revolution. Davidson shows how our globalized societies of the present are the result of a contested, turbulent history marked by often forceful revolutions directed against old social orders, from the Dutch Revolt to the English and American Civil Wars and beyond.
