Abstract:

The French Revolution marked the beginning of the modern era. Its ideals of social equality and national self-determination, which upset the well-ordered eighteenth-century world, have served as the mainspring of all subsequent political revolutions. This study follows the Revolution from its mid-eighteenth-century origins through the fall of the throne, the Jacobin coup, the Terror, and the fall of Robespierre to the beginning of the Napoleonic era in 1799. Major crises are analyzed in terms of the most recent scholarship, and contemporary interpretation sheds new light on the myths surrounding Marat, the Terror, and the sans-culottes. [Back cover].
