The paper will focus on the relationship between counterrevolution, capitalist transformation, the state, and the middle class. It looks at how the dialectic of revolution and counterrevolution operated in five societies: Italy, Indonesia, Chile, Thailand and the Philippines. It seeks to understand the motion of different classes in periods of great political fluidity. It explores the relationship between state elites and counterrevolutionary mass movements. Finally, it probes the relationship between domestic counterrevolution and global geopolitics.
