A People's History of the French Revolution


Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

"The assault on the Bastille, the Reign of Terror, Danton mocking his executioner, Robespierre dispensing a fearful justice, and the archetypal gadfly Marat – the events and figures of the French Revolution have exercised a hold on the historical imagination for more than 200 years. It has been a template for heroic insurrection and, to more conservative minds, a cautionary tale.
Adopting the perspective of the people the revolution sought to emancipate, Eric Hazan presents readers with a rational and ethical struggle. This new history, the first significant account of the French Revolution in over twenty years, reestablishes the conviction that the revolution fundamentally change the Western world – for the better."

Eric Hazan. Verso, 2017.
