Objective:One of the theories about the reason of revolutions is the theory of the revolutionary transformation of Chalmers Johnson. Testing this theory with revolutions in the Islamic countries is the main important objet of this article. The question is that how much Johnson's theory is compatible with the revolutions that took place in the world and to what extent this theory is capable of explaining the causes of the occurrence of these revolutions.
Methods: In this study, three Iranian, Egyptian, and Libyan revolutions in the Islamic world have been investigated. The present paper seeks to test Johnson's theory of revolutionary transformations in the three countries.
Results:According to this study, it can be concluded that from the three factors mentioned by Johnson, two factors, including inequality and accelerating factors, are partially applicable to these revolutions, But the elites rigidity factor, with the exception of the Libyan revolution, is not compatible with the other two revolutions.
Conclusion: Johnson's theory about revolution is not capable enough to explain these revolutions.
