Review of International Studies




Forum on Fred Halliday

The great anomaly


Fred  Halliday 

Abstract

No author of a study such as mine could fail to be grateful, to editors and contributors alike, for a discussion as wide-ranging and pertinent as that which the Review has accorded my book on revolutions. The main purpose of Revolution and World Politics was to place the study of revolutions, as historical process and as theoretical challenge, at the centre of International Relations. The responses printed here seem, in large measure, to reinforce that endeavour.
