The history of civilization in Europe by François Guizot( Book )

94 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In response to the reactionary arguments of ultra-royalists, Francois Guizot (1787-1874) showed that aristocratic social conditions had gone for ever. The growth of towns and a market economy had forged the bourgeoisie and created a 'democratic' (or capitalist) society based on individual rights. Yet in France, if not in England, this just and inevitable process had been accompanied by the destruction of local autonomy and the creation of an overpowerful state bureaucracy." "The History stresses the role of class conflict as a catalyst for social change, and the energizing effect of Europe's plural traditions (Roman, Christian and Germanic). Such themes, argues Siedentop, deeply influenced the thinking of his three great contemporaries Tocqueville, Marx and Mill, revealing Guizot as both 'the key to an epoch' and 'the most trenchant historical mind of the nineteenth century'."--Jacket

The French political philosopher and historian Fran ois Guizot (1787-1874) was one of the French Doctrinaires, thinkers who sought to avoid the interpretations of the Revolution advanced by either extreme of Left or Right. He argued that in order to understand the nature of political institutions it is necessary to study first the society, its composition, mores, and the relation between various classes. At the very center of his theory lies the principle of the sovereignty of reason. The first part of the book covers the period from the fifth to the eleventh century and such topics as the "true" principles of representative government and the origin and consequences of the sovereignty of the people. The second part spans the Norman Conquest to the reign of the Tudors in England and analyzes the architecture of the English Constitutional monarchy. Guizot's historical method combined philosophy and history by passing from the exposition of facts to the examination of ideas. Readers not familiar with him will profit from an encounter with Guizot, who not only writes in a beautiful French style but also illustrates the French liberal-conservative tradition at its best, much like Constant and Tocqueville

Analyse: (vol. 2, p. 143-146) Le 8 décembre 1830, le parti libéral perd en Constant son "plus spirituel organe". L'auteur trace le portrait d'un Constant "brillant", mais "sceptique et moqueur". Les largesses de Louis-Philippe (don de 200.000 francs et nomination au comité de législation du Conseil d'Etat) n'enrayèrent pas la ruine morale et financière du député libéral, puisqu'il était engagé dans "la moins digne des oppositions": une "flatterie subtile des passions révolutionnaires et populaires". L'auteur rappelle aussi les échecs de Constant à l'Académie, et ses obsèques : l'"enthousiasme faux", le "cortège froid et sec" furent à l'image de la vie de l'homme

La 4e de couverture indique : "Mieux encore que Charlemagne, Cromwell ou Napoléon, George Washington (1732-1799) a incarné le grand homme par excellence aux yeux du plus illustre historien français du premier XIXe siècle, François Guizot. Aussi ce dernier, qui fut également homme d'Etat, lui a-t-il consacré un essai biographique paru en 1840 avec un succès immédiat. Ce protrait, informé et attachant, du général en chef puis premier président des Etats-Unis durant deux mandats est l'occasion d'une réflexion toujours actuelle sur les fondements de la jeune république, sur l'esprit de liberté dont elle est issue, sur l'imprégnation religieuse de la société, aussi sur les causes du succès de la révolution américaine comparé au mauvais sort de la révolution française."
