The coming of the French Revolution, 1789 by Georges Lefebvre( Book )

168 editions published between 1939 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 3,538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author disclaims any other intention than that of reconstructing the main outlines of the four acts into which he arranges the revolutionary happenings from roughly the summer of 1788 to October, 1789. These developments he calls the aristocratic, the bourgeois, the popular and the peasant revolutions. Moments of deepest dramatic intensity -- the storming of the Bastille, the unbelievable and mad night of August 4 which made a holocaust (at least on paper) of the Old Regime, the contagious sweep of the Great Fear, and the turbulent march of Paris on Versailles early in October -- all fall within that year of crisis. Brilliantly as Lefebvre treats them and the actors, he actually does far more than present them with sympathy, lucidity and understanding. For each one of these major phases is also placed in its historical setting. - Leo Gershoy, New York Herald Tribune, on back cover

The Great Fear of 1789; rural panic in revolutionary France by Georges Lefebvre( Book )

106 editions published between 1932 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La grande peur de 1789 est un événement étonnant. En réaction aux incertitudes de la Révolution, d'un bout à l'autre du royaume, se répand l'idée que des aristocrates arment des brigands pour ravager les récoltes et massacrer le peuple. Aux contemporains déconcertés, elle apparut comme un mystère. Ceux qui voulurent, à toutes forces, en improviser une explication l'attribuèrent à un complot qu'ils rapportèrent, suivant leurs opinions, à l'aristocratie ou aux révolutionnaires
The French Revolution from its origins to 1793 by Georges Lefebvre( Book )

169 editions published between 1930 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Internationally renowned as the greatest authority on the French Revolution, Georges Lefebvre combined impeccable scholarship with a lively writing style. His masterly overview of the history of the French Revolution has taken its rightful place as the definitive account. A vivid narrative of events in France and across Europe is combined with acute insights into the underlying forces that created the dynamics of the revolution, as well as the personalities responsible for day-to-day decisions during this momentous period. In tracing the web of intrigues and influences that transpired as the French Revolution, Lefebvre illuminates the fundamentals of historical interpretation and, at the same time, tells a story that will compel every reader."--Wheelers.co.nz
