OWHL Answers

Welcome to the Oliver Wendell Holmes Library!

Welcome to the Oliver Wendell Holmes Library!  This guide will help you find appropriate sources for all of your research this summer.  Also, there are librarians here to help you all day long.  Please stop in if you have any questions!

Remember, your research and your paper should attempt to answer the following questions:

  • What caused the revolution?
  • What evidence do you see of Goldstone’s 5 preconditions?
  • What was the course and consequences of the revolution? How well does Brinton’s 4 phase approach explain this revolution?
  • Evaluate Goldstone and Brinton: How useful and valuable are their theories to understanding your specific revolution in its causes and course, and consequences?
