Book Description

A watershed in modern world history, the French Revolution swept away the decrepit institutions of Frances absolute monarchy and ushered in an age of profound social, economic, and political upheaval, the bitterly contested legacy of which is felt right up to the present day. With a mixture of sharp analysis and lively narrative, Peter Davies draws from a broad range of sources to offer an engaging and enjoyable discussion that guides us through this complex but endlessly fascinating period.

Examining the currents of opposition expressed in the Counter Revolution, the varied interpretations of the period by historians, and the way its ramifications permeate French politics even today, Davies brings the story of the Revolution up to date and illustrates its lasting imprint on the French psyche.
