by John Hardman
Part of the Profiles In Power series
Robespierre was one of the most powerful and the most feared leaders of the French Revolution.
John Hardman describes the career of this ruthless political manipulator, and in the process explores the dynamics of the French revolutionary movement and the ferocious and self-destructive rivalries of its leadership.This original book gets behind the polished but chilly surface of the public persona to reveal how Robespierre came by his extraordinary power and how he used it.
