This textbook traces the transition from an aristocratic social order deeply laced with the concept of hierarchy to a democratic order based on equality. Invoking equality as the norm for establishing a new legal and political order has not wiped out traces of hierarchical order in the modern world. Events like French Revolution, Russian Revolution, Tiananmen Square and Tahrir Square to the silent revolution by Aung San Suu Kyi are a testimony of an egalitarian world.
