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.
