Revolutions that changed the world

In this course, we will take a journey through the most significant revolutions in history. Revolutions, so often driven from the lower levels of society, have the ability to inspire, as well as alter the course of history. Therefore, to understand revolutions and what drove the desire for change, we will look at their causes, which are numbered and varied. Revolutions have the power to defy social and political norms in a way that determines the course of a country, but that is not to say that they are all successful. While examining these ten revolutions from around the world, we will take a look at their impact and how they are viewed today.
