Revolutions are distinguished by differences in processes, as well as outcomes. By separating revolutionary processes into distinct components, we can distinguish varied types by the sequence and combination in which particular components appear. In particular, the 'color' revolutions in recent years show a distinct pattern of unfolding. However, this is not entirely novel – these events share many feature with other revolutions that had previously been considered anomalous, such as the American Revolution, and the British 'Glorious' Revolution of 1688.
