278 JOURNAL OF WORLD HISTORY, JUNE 2018 intellectuals and the politics of the intelligentsia as their starting point. Curiously, he does not mention Charles Kurzman’s comparative history of intellectuals and constitutional revolutions between 1905 and 1915—perhaps a reflection that Kurzman’s background training as a sociologist suggests that the dichotomy between historical and sociological approaches might no longer be as strong as suggested in the introduction to this volume. Scripting Revolutions is an excellent book. But is it a global or world history? Like the other works reviewed here, the balance of areas covered remains somewhat uneven: eleven of the chapters are primarily focused upon Europe (with France and England receiving the most attention); the rest of the world makes do with seven—there are two chapters on Asia, two on the Middle East, two on the Caribbean, and one on the USA. Like the other books discussed in this review, the history of the southern hemisphere is largely untouched. As is the case with Censer’s history of revolutionary ideas, there appears to be some kind of intellectual wall that prevents the Mexican Revolution and its scripts from receiving any attention. The volume would also have benefitted from further chapters on
