This book explores the ways in which ideas of geography and of revolution, and the relationships between them, may be understood. It is an attempt to bring together insights from geographers, historians, and historians of science concerning the importance of geographical thinking and recognition of the difference that space makes to an understanding of the nature of revolutions, however that term has been used. In developing these ideas, an important initial distinction may be made between the geography of revolution and geography in revolution. In order to establish the connections between geography and revolution, this chapter begins by reviewing the diverse literatures regarding the term “revolution.”
