The word 'revolution' has been devalued by being so widely spread. One hears of revolutions not only in political organisation and tech­ nology, but also in tastes and toothpaste. Even when one confines the term to political revolution the phenomenon is still one of impressive complexity and variety. In this article I shall not attempt any com­ prehensive treatment of revolution, but only to indicate certain general characteristics of it which I believe to be relevant to its evaluation.
