The French Revolution : A Beginner's Guide, Paperback

The French Revolution : A Beginner's Guide Paperback

Part of the Beginner's Guides series


Blending narrative with analysis, Peter Davies explores a time of obscene opulence, mass starvation, and ground-breaking ideals; where the streets of Paris ran red with blood, and when even the efficient guillotine was unable to despatch enough "counter-revolutionaries" for the needs of the Terror.

Davies brings the subject up to date by considering the legacy of the revolution and how it continues to resonate in today's France.
