Revolution happens when there is a fundamental change over a short period of time. Revolution happens in many areas of life.: The Industrial Revolution, the technology revolution, and feminist revolution for example. Mr. Miller’s assignment refers to war and revolution, so focus on how violent political revolutions have affected Europe. The word revolution is used in history to define a violent and complete change in the fabric of a society. The French and Russian Revolutions are examples of the epic nature of revolution.
