A short history of the French Revolution by Jeremy D Popkin( Book )
25 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 932 libraries worldwide
"This concise survey of the French Revolution and Napoleonic period offers an alternative to the long, detailed texts more suited to advanced study. Author Jeremy D. Popkin introduces readers to the major events that comprise the story of the French Revolution, to the different ways in which historians have interpreted them, to the political, social, and cultural origins of the Revolution, and to the latest methodological approaches." "Beginning with the prerevolutionary crisis, Popkin leads readers through the dramatic events that led to the storming of the Bastille in 1789. Along the way, he discusses the effort to create a constitutional regime, the collapse of the new constitution, and the overthrow of the monarchy. This newly revised edition provides expanded discussion of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen and the king's trial. In addition, A Short History of the French Revolution: explores the Jacobin dictatorship and the Reign of Terror; examines the search for stability under the Directory; features in-depth coverage of Napoleon's Consulate and Empire; and looks at the long-term consequences of the Revolution for France and the world."--Jacket

Media and revolution : comparative perspectives by Jeremy D Popkin( Book )
18 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and held by 557 libraries worldwide
As television screens across America showed Chinese students blocking government tanks in Tiananmen Square, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and missiles searching their targets in Baghdad, the connection between media and revolution seemed more significant than ever. In this book, thirteen prominent scholars examine the role of the communication media in revolutionary crises -- from the Puritan Revolution of the 1640s to the upheaval in the former Czechoslovakia. Their central question: Do the media in fact have a real influence on the unfolding of revolutionary crises? On this question, the contr

You are all free : the Haitian revolution and the abolition of slavery by Jeremy D Popkin( Book )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 505 libraries worldwide
"The abolitions of slavery in the French Caribbean colony of Saint-Domingue in 1793 and in revolutionary France in 1794 were the first dramatic blows against an institution that had shaped the Atlantic world for three centuries and affected the lives of millions of people. Based on extensive archival research, You Are All Free provides an account of the dramatic events that led to these epochal decrees, and also to the destruction of Cap Francais, the richest city in the French Caribbean, and to the first refugee crisis in the United States. Taking issue with earlier accounts that claim that Saint-Domingue's slaves freed themselves, or that French revolutionaries abolished slavery as part of a general campaign for universal human rights, this book shows that abolition was the result of complex and often paradoxical political struggles on both sides of the Atlantic"--Résumé de l'éditeur

9 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 501 libraries worldwide
History, historians, & autobiography by Jeremy D Popkin( Book )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 477 libraries worldwide
"Drawing on the theoretical work of contemporary critics of autobiography and the philosopher Paul Ricoeur, Popkin reads the autobiographical classics of Edward Gibbon and Henry Adams and the memoirs of contemporary historians such as Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie, Peter Gay, Jill Ker Conway, and many others. He reveals the contributions historians' life stories make to our understanding of the human experience. Historians' autobiographies, he shows, reveal how scholars arrive at their vocations, the difficulties of writing about modern professional life, and the ways in which personal stories can add to our understanding of historical events such as war, political movements, and the traumas of the Holocaust." "An overview of the way historians view themselves and their profession, History, Historians, and Autobiography will be of interest to readers concerned with the ways in which we understand the past, as well as anyone interested in the art of life-writing."--Jacket

News and politics in the age of revolution : Jean Luzac's Gazette de Leyde by Jeremy D Popkin( Book )
13 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in English and held by 445 libraries worldwide
At the center of this book stands the story of a great but forgotten newspaper: the Gazette de Leyde, edited by Jean Luzac from 1772 to 1798. A French-language biweekly newspaper published in the Dutch city of Leiden from 1677 to 1811, the Gazette de Leyde was regarded as the international newspaper of record, occupying the cultural niche filled today by the New York Times and Le Monde. Jeremy D. Popkin reconstructs the Gazette's history, providing a comprehensive picture of the environment that produced it, how it gathered and printed its reports, its relationship with its readers, and the way it depicted the great events of three critical decades. In rich detail he shows that absolutist regimes often cooperated with the Gazette's editors, providing information and condoning its publication in open violation of their own censorship regimes. He also examines the Dutch context which fostered both the freedom that made the paper's publication possible and the technology and business skills that allowed for its rapid publication and successful marketing. In addition, he draws on a wide reading of the press of the period to compare the Gazette with other major newspapers. He concludes with a treatment of the paper's fortunes during the era of the French Revolution

From Herodotus to H-Net : the story of historiography by Jeremy D Popkin( Book )
7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 277 libraries worldwide
From Herodotus to H-Net: The Story of Historiography offers a concise but comprehensive and up-to-date account of the many ways history has been studied and recounted, from the ancient world to the new universe of the Internet. Clearly written and organized, it shows how the same issues that historians debate today were already recognized in past centuries, and how the efforts of historians in the past remain relevant today. Balanced and fair-minded, the book covers the development of modern academic scholarship, but also helps students appreciate the contributions of popular historians and of the many forms of public history. Often drawing on what historians from Edward Gibbon to Natalie Zemon Davis have written about their own careers, From Herodotus to H-Net brings the discipline of history alive for students and general readers

The legacies of Richard Popkin by Jeremy D Popkin( Book )
15 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 128 libraries worldwide
"Richard H. Popkin (1923-2005) transformed the study of the history of philosophy in the second half of the twentieth century. His History of Scepticism and his many other publications demonstrated the centrality of the problem of skepticism in the development of modern thought, the intimate connections between philosophy and religion, and the importance of contacts between Jewish and Christian thinkers. In this volume, scholars from around the world assess Popkin's contributions to the many fields in which he was interested. The Legacies of Richard Popkin provides a broad overview of Popkin's work and demonstrates the connections between the many topics he wrote about. A concluding article, by Popkin's son Jeremy Popkin, draws on private letters to provide a picture of Popkin's life and career in his own words, revealing the richness of the documents now accessible to scholars in the Richard Popkin papers at the William Andrews Clark Library in Los Angeles."--Back of dust jacket

La contre-révolution en Europe, XVIIIe-XIXe siècles : réalités politiques et sociales, résonances culturelles et idéologiques by François Antoine( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 0 libraries worldwide
La Contre-Révolution possède une existence historiographique paradoxale. Si elle est citée comme une menace constante et une force dangereuse, elle n'est présentée que sous une forme fragmentée, assemblant pêle-mêle les nobles de l'émigration, les penseurs militants, avec les ruraux de l'Ouest ou du Midi, les Viva Maria italiens et les paysans belges, à qui sont adjoints les pays européens entrés en guerre - l'Angleterre de Pitt en tête. Omniprésente dans l'ombre mais souvent absente du discours historique, la Contre-Révolution reste mal connue. Depuis une vingtaine d'années, l'histoire scientifique reprend cette question à nouveaux frais. C'est l'objet de ces pages que de proposer, modestement, à la fois un premier bilan des travaux récents et des pistes de recherches. Sans postuler l'existence d'une quelconque unité de la Contre-Révolution, cette rencontre entre des historiens européens brosse le tableau de cette réalité politique et sociale complexe, et montre la Contre-Révolution à la fois puissante et faible, essentielle et marginale. Elle met en valeur l'hétérogénéité des chronologies qui existent dans les différents pays, ceci expliquant la diversité des formes d'intervention de la Contre- Révolution. Enfin elle insiste sur l'importance fantasmatique de la Contre-Révolution européenne. La reconnaissance de la place de la Contre- Révolution dans les jeux politiques en France et en Europe permet de comprendre les affrontements qui lui furent liés comme autant d'épisodes des guerres civiles à l'intérieur de chacun des pays européens, ainsi que des moments de la lutte "internationale" ou "idéologique" qui a traversé toute l'Europe dans les XIXe et XXe siècles
