The Revolutions of 1989, sometimes called the Autumn of Nations, was a revolutionary wave that swept across Central and Eastern Europe in the autumn of 1989, ending in the overthrow of Soviet-style communist states within the space of a few months. The names for this series of events hark back to the Revolutions of 1848, also known as the "Spring of Nations."
