On the outcomes of revolutions: Some preliminary considerations

Sociological Theory 8 (1):33-47 (1990)
This article presents a theoretical outline of variables for evaluating (long-term) outcomes of revolutions. These outcomes are assessed in four sectors: politics, the economics, the social-cultural realm, and state power. Amongst the set of explanatory variables are factor endowments, the former level of economic development and previous socioeconomic structures, economic and political institutions, policy outputs and various international constraints. Empirical illustrations and some generalizations are provided by drawing on the sixteen or so revolutions that occurred after 1600. Each revolution is briefly characterized both in terms of its own achievements and drawbacks and putting it in perspective vis-a-vis other revolutions
