Editorial Reviews


Reviews of the parent volume Revolutionary France 1770-1880:

"An outstanding work of synthesis and imagination." The Times

"This book is the best - and, especially, the best written - history of French politics during these years that I know. Conceived in the analytical tradition of Constant and Tocqueville, written in the narrative, learned, and convincing." Patrice Higonnet, Harvard University

Format: Paperback
I'm about 100 pages in and it's okay but not great. The author expects the reader to know a whole lot about the French Revolution before he explains it. I'm sure it makes perfect sense to an expert, but I'm reading the book to understand the basics AND analyze the details. He assumes the former and skips right to the latter. His writing style is sometimes unclear as well, with pronouns used for pages at a time without any reminder of the antecedent. In general it's okay, but it could be a whole lot better.
