Age of Revolutions, American Revolution, Political changes
The Age of Revolutions was marked by the American Revolution (1775-1783), Haitian Revolution (1791-1804), French Revolution (1789-1799), Spanish and Greek wars. The Age of Revolutions (c. 1760-1840) was a historic period and was global in nature because the effects of economic, social, intellectual, and political changes caused by the Age of Revolutions were historic and global in nature. The study analyzes the following questions; how did economic, social, intellectual, and political changes during the period (c. 1760-1840) make the Age of Revolutions a historic period? How was the Age of Revolutions global in reach and character? Answers to the questions will permit me to make a conclusion on why the Age of Revolutions (c. 1760-1840) was a historic period and whether it was global in nature and character.
Political changes during the Age of Revolutions made the period (c. 1760-1840) historic in nature because the effects of the political changes were historic. The Age of Revolutions was mother to political transformations and bore political ideologies that were used by future political movements globally. The political changes made the Age of Revolutions a global reference point for the political arena (Chickering, Roger, and Stig 132).

Nations colonized by the Europeans adopted socialism and communalism political ideologies to form political movements and revolutions to fight for their rights (Kallen 331).
