{{About|revolution that transforms existing class structure|1959–1961 Revolution in Rwanda or Winds of Destruction|Rwandan Revolution}}{{redirect|Social revolutionaries|the Social Revolutionaries in the Russian Revolution|Socialist Revolutionary Party}}{{Revolution sidebar}}Social revolutions are sudden changes in the structure and nature of society.WEB, social revolution,weblink oxforddictionaries.com, Oxford University Press, 24 August 2017, These revolutions are usually recognized as having transformed in society, culture, philosophy, and technology much more than political systems.Irving E. Fang, A History of Mass Communication: Six Information Revolutions, Focal Press, 1997, {{ISBN|0-240-80254-3}}, p. xvTheda Skocpol in her article "France, Russia, China: A Structural Analysis of Social Revolutions" states that social revolution is a "combination of thoroughgoing structural transformation and massive class upheavals".Skocpol, Theda. 1979. States and Social Revolutions: A Comparative Analysis of France, Russia and China. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press., p. 173 She comes to this definition by combining Samuel P. Huntington's definition that it "is a rapid, fundamental, and violent domestic change in the dominant values and myths of society, in its political institutions, social structure, leadership, and government activities and policies"Huntington, Samuel P. 1968. Political Order in Changing Societies. New Haven: Yale University Press., p.264 and Vladimir Lenin's, which is that revolutions are "the festivals of the oppressed...[who act] as creators of a new social order".(Skopcol, op cit) She also states that this definition excludes many revolutions, because they fail to meet either or both of the two parts of this definition.Skocpol, Theda. 1979. States and Social Revolutions: A Comparative Analysis of France, Russia and China. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press., p.3.
