This book takes up 20 greatest revolutionaries from modern history and goes through their lives to understand how they rose to positions of power and how they inspired the masses to follow their goals, sometimes by personal charisma and at times with nothing more than an unwavering faith in an ideal. 20 Greatest Revolutionaries also looks at how they shaped not only the history of their country but at times, even that of the world. Finally, it also looks at the legacy they left behind, despite their popularity waxing and waning with the passage of time because of changing ideological perceptions.
