Daily Life Lessons with Daniel Chirot: On Modern Revolution

This week we spoke with the author of You Say You Want a Revolution?, Daniel Chirot, Herbert J. Ellison, Professor of Russian and Eurasian Studies at the University of Washington’s Henry M. Jackson School.

From Japan, North Korea, Vietnam, and Cambodia to Algeria, Angola, Haiti, and Romania, You Say You Want a Revolution?  explains why violent radicalism, corruption, and the betrayal of ideals won in so many crucial cases, why it didn't in some others-and what the long-term prospects for major social change are if liberals can't deliver needed reforms.

A powerful account of the unintended consequences of revolutionary change, You Say You Want a Revolution?  is filled with critically important lessons for today's liberal democracies struggling with new forms of extremism.

Listen to Daniel's Daily Life Lesson here on why he believes most modern revolutions have ended in bloodshed and failure-and what lessons they hold for today's world of growing extremism.

Plus, you can read an extract of his book, You Say You Want A Revolution? here.
