Revolution

Jump to: navigation, search

A revolution is a major, sudden, and often (previously) illegal alteration in government and in related associations and structures.

By analogy, "revolution" is used in terms for other major transformation, such as the Industrial Revolution, although such transformations need not be illegal or very quick.

Regarding the difference with a coup d'état, see the article on this topic.
