This insightful study of the French Revolutionary festival is certainly one of the most important works on the Revolution to appear in English in the last 25 years. In this novel approach, Ozouf concentrates on the symbolism, psychology, and significance of the festival, showing the importance of the festival in creating a new world view. The festival is regarded as a medium for national civic education and a manifestation of a new world order basic to modern civilization. Aided by an excellent translation, this thoughtful work will interest serious lay readers and scholars. Highly recommended. William C. McCully, Park Ridge P.L., Ill.
