Revolutionary News : The Press in France, 1789-1799 Hardback

Part of the Bicentennial Reflections on the French Revolution series

Description

The newspaper press was an essential aspect of the political culture of the French Revolution.

Revolutionary News highlights the most significant features of this press in clear and vivid language.

It breaks new ground in examining not only the famous journalists but the obscure publishers and the anonymous readers of the Revolutionary newspapers.

Popkin examines the way press reporting affected Revolutionary crises and the way in which radical journalists like Marat and the Pere Duchene used their papers to promote democracy.
