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). The concept of the ?nation?, developed as a result of the French and American Revolutions, became a tool for political development globally. Nations colonized by the Europeans adopted socialism and communalism political ideologies to form political movements and revolutions to fight for their rights (Kallen 331).

[...] The effects of the various political changes signify a period in world history when important changes occurred in the political field and, therefore, this made the Age of Revolutions (c. 1760-1840) a significant period in world history. Social changes during the Age of revolutions made the period a historic because the effects of the social changes were historic in nature. Social progress was evident in the Age of Revolutions, even though it was uneven social progress. The affected parties included women, slaves, and the poor. Social changes related to these groups caused historic effects in Europe and the whole world and therefore made the period historic. [...]

[...] I believe that the Age of Revolutions played a great role in building the first countries and future superpowers. Other nations were lagging behind as the major nations amassed more wealth (Hoffman, Ronald, and Peter 373). The result was a division between 'underdeveloped' and 'advanced' countries and by 1848; it was obvious which countries were to be grouped first. The effect of the economic transformations made the rest of the world result into dependence on the western powers due to their military pressure, imports and exports. [...]
