Revolution of Guatemala 1944-1954


The Final Project will take the following form:

POS 152 Final Project–Build Your Nation State (Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your National Life)

Consider the following revolutions:  Guatemala (1954), Romania (1989), Serbia (2000),  Rose Revolution (2003), Orange Revolution (2004), Tulip Revolution  (2005). Choose one for examination.

1) What are the resources–e.g. human capital, natural resources, geopolitics–that were available to the new regime the day after the revolution (at a minimum, you should explain the information for each of the seven categories used in the profiles in the CIA World Factbook.)

2) What caused the revolution? How can a recurrence be prevented? (This would involve a social autopsy.)

3) From among the political philosophers covered in class (Socrates in the Crito, Matthew 25:31-46, Plato’s Republic, Marcus Aurelius, Hsun Tzu, Aristotle, Hume, Locke, Hobbes, Burke, Rousseau, Marx), which would be useful in setting up a new state/society from the day after the revolution onwards and why? Why would those you did not choose not be applicable?

4) How would the new state/ society proceed to function to avoid domestic pitfalls and to improve domestic situations? (This would be an opportunity to apply Winter’s categories of behavior/schemata. This would also be an opportunity to apply the theory of Complex Adaptive Systems to significant individuals and interest groups within the country.)

5) How would the new state/society function in the international arena, i.e. as a newly created agent in the fitness landscape of international relations? What would be involved in dealing with international organizations, particularly to secure aid of various sorts and how should the new state approach international organizations of a quasi-governmental nature (e.g. the United Nations, World Court, European Union, agencies in the UN Secretariat?) How would the new state/society avoid war, both hot and cold?
