Editorial Reviews


“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

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was ecstatic when I received this book. It's teeming with concrete insight and debate relevant to an in-depth understanding of the French Revolution, from a few letters between Marie Antoinette and Axel Fersen, to a short note written by Robespierre on the accusation of Danton, to the Manifesto of the Enrages and another speech by the leader of that faction, Jacques Roux. Having said all that, I was sorely disappointed when I came to find that the volume doesn't include the Brunswick Manifesto. I found this rather odd, seeing as the cover illustration is one caricaturing The Terror, but the editor did not include perhaps the most crucial document of the radical phase of the revolution, barring only perhaps the constitution of '93. That gnawing peccadillo aside, the book will be indispensable to my future as a historian. 4 out of 5 stars!
