- A study of the causes of the American Revolution of 1776, the French Revolution of 1789, and the Russian Revolution of 1917 best supports the generalization that revolution is most likely to occur when?
I'll be glad to critique your answer.
Revolution is most likely to occur when the economy has taken a downturn and there is political upheaval. This is generally accompanied by new ideals and a group of individual pushing for change. In the case of the American Revolution, the American colonists were seeking extrication from the British throne. In the French Revolution, the French population were seeking freedom from rule by the House of Bourbon. The Russian Revolution was a result of the tsar's seeming indifference to the political turmoil of his people, and the leftist movement sweeping his country.
