"As well as bringing vividly to life the famous heroes and villains of the French Revolution, Tom Ambrose introduces the reader to a host of colourful and truly unforgettable characters, including Philippe's friend the Chevalier de Saint-George ('the Black Mozart') with whom he co-founded the first French anti-slavery society, the Duc's mistress Madame de Genlis, femme fatale and leading intellectual of the age, and - most significantly - Philippe himself, a towering figure in one of the most significant periods of European history."--Jacket." ;
