“The most thorough collection of sources on the Revolutionary period up to the end of the Terror. there is no better collection available for analysing and understanding the interplay of events, the theoretical debates, the political backstabbing, and the give-and-take that were behind the edicts of 1788, the calling of the Estates-General, the radicalisation of the National Assembly, and Robespierre's downfall.” ―H-Net Reviews
“The most accessible collection of translated French revolutionary documents is now available in a revised and expanded edition. With its informed and up-to-date commentary, it will be indispensable for all courses seeking to study this complex subject in depth.” ―Professor William Doyle, University of Bristol, UK
