    In this significant and very timely book, the author of The Technological Society, The Political Illusion, and Propaganda asks a tremendous question and shows that the answer we give it is decisive for the future of our society: Can we learn from history what revolution really is necessary for our survival? That is, can we distinguish between senseless, ineffectual revolt or rebellion and a genuine revolution that can alter fundamentals? In his basic, closely reasoned way, Jacques Ellul examines past and recent history in ... Show more

Sterile Book on Revolutions and Rebellions

by AMS123 on Sep 30, 2010

Ellul writes what starts out as an interesting analysis of revolutions, rebellions, and insurrections throughout history. However, after defining the terms well, and providing a wealth of examples, he changes direction and shifts into a criticism of Marx's concept of revolution. That would be interesting enough, but he laces the discussion with confusing terminology and dated examples. Ultimately, the book loses its focus as he shifts from analysis of Marxian revolution versus the historical pattern to the chaos of the sixties. By the end, the book bears no relevance to its theme. I think that this book might be good for checking the footnotes, but nothing else. A person would be better off checking out "Fire in the Minds of Men", "Revolutionary Apocalypse", and "The Rise of Radicalism" for clear analyses of the phenomenon of revolution.
