Personal accounts of revolution

Dear colleagues,

I am putting together my reading list for my Fall 2014 World History survey course. I'll be working with the theme of revolution, and am looking for recommendations of personal accounts/experiences with revolution. I'm currently considering "Wobblies!: a graphic history of the Industrial Workers of the World" and "First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers." Please let me know if you have any other suggestions (1450-present).

Thank you,

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

French Travelers and Colonization (1850-1914)

FROM THE EDITOR: The following the fourth of four requests for bibliographic feedback from graduate students in Northeastern University’s World History program focused on various aspects of imperial/colonial histories. The original posting came with all four bibliographies together, with an additional request for sources that might connect all four lists together. I have separated them out into four distinct postings with the hopes that this will increase both focus and discussion.
