Innocent Thoughts This blog is just innocent thoughts of social change. I provide the viewing audience with both a sociological and criminological perspective on relevant issues society faces. Some posts are academic papers which contain a variety of valid sources for research reference purposes. Please feel free to express your opinion as you please. This book provides insight in the various events that played a role in the uprisings. Providing you with historical history on the cultures and their political monarchy developments, Gelvin provides great insight into the understanding and development of these; what can be looked at as, unique uprisings.
