(p.151) Chapter Seven Revolutions
Regimes and Repertoires

Charles Tilly

University of Chicago Press

This chapter offers an explanation on the revolution. It also argues that a revolution did occur in Rwanda. A revolution involves a forcible transfer of power over a state. It also combines a revolutionary situation with a revolutionary outcome. Repertoires shape revolutions. The history of European revolutions over the last half-millennium shows great importance for the study of regimes and repertoires. National revolutionary situations and outcomes did not disappear in the twentieth century. Data also show that the possibility of revolution depended heavily on the organization of regimes. International responses and economic support for competing military organizations came to dominate the prospects for revolution during the late twentieth century. Moreover, the changing revolutionary processes provide democrats and capitalists plenty of room for worry.

Keywords:   repertoires, regimes, Rwanda, European revolutions, military organizations, democrats, capitalists
