Violent Social Revolution: Cuba and Bolivia
Brown, Terrence John
MetadataShow full item record
The revolutionary or guerrilla war has emerged as a significant factor of social and political change in the modern world. The works which have been written about the phenomenon of violent social revolution have recognized the unique combination of military and political factors involved in the revolutionary war. Yet most have approached it from a distinctly military angle. The purpose of this paper is to examine the Cuban revolutionary experience of 1956 to 1957 and the Bolivian experience of 1966 to 1967. To overcome the above problem, a model of political analysis will be developed. These two revolutionary experiences will then be compared in an attempt to isolate the critical differences between them. Finally, these critical variables will be examined, and generalizations about the revolutionary war will be drawn from them.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
