Humans of Atlas! Having realized how empty my life is without long-term projects and the like, there is an area of knowledge that I would like to gain more insight on for some sinister future plans. If anyone should have the knowledge, titles related to the following would be greatly appreciated!

-General principles or theories of revolt, uprising, revolution, disruption, riots, and so on;
-Unrest in the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact at its various stages of disruption (1956, 1968, 1980, late 1980s-1991)'
-Unrest throughout the world in the 1960s;
-The Arab Spring
-"Social Revolutions"

If any help is at all possible, it would be greatly appreciated. Smiley

Just to get you started:

Uncivil Society and Armageddon Averted by Stephen Kotkin are both good books. The former is about the collapse of the minor Warsaw Pact allies and the latter is about the collapse of the USSR itself.

The Political Thought of Sayyid Qutb: The Theory of Jahiliyyah and The Power of Sovereignty: The Political and Ideological Philosophy of Sayyid Qutb. These sequential books trace the movement of Islamism in the post-colonial Middle East, but in so doing, they also explore the influence of colonialism on the political thought of a colonized people, the fundamental features of the Western worldview (as perceived by those outside of it), and the ideal relationship between religion and the state.
