(p.3) 1 Toward a Theory of Unarmed Revolution
The Iron Cage of Liberalism

Daniel P. Ritter

Oxford University Press

The book’s opening chapter begins by establishing the emergence of unarmed revolution in the late twentieth century and depicts it as a distinct political phenomenon. The chapter then introduces the reader to the book’s central research question and offers a definition of what unarmed revolutions are. After a brief review of the existing scholarship on revolution and civil resistance, the chapter presents the book’s theoretical framework by putting forth the notion of the iron cage of liberalism. Finally, the book’s research design and approach is discussed, followed by an outline of the remaining chapters.

Keywords:   unarmed revolution, civil resistance, revolution, liberalism, iron cage of liberalism
