|Summary||Revolutions are sometimes lauded as the only way to remove dictatorships and replace them with democratic regimes. The historical record of revolutions in this regard has been decidedly mixed. Using the new V-Dem multi-dimensional measure of democracy, this paper examines the nature of post-revolutionary regimes in Europe from the French Revolution of 1789 to the color revolutions of the early 2000s.|
