Abstract:

For the Western world, the period from 1760 to 1800 was the great revolutionary era in which the outlines of the modern democratic state came into being. Here, in one volume, is R.R. Palmers magisterial account of this incendiary age. Palmer argues that the American, French, and Polish revolutionsand the movements for political change in Britain, Ireland, Holland, and elsewherewere manifestations of similar political ideas, needs, and conflicts. Palmer traces the clash between an older form of society, marked by legalized social rank and hereditary or self-perpetuating elites, and a new form of society that placed a greater value on social mobility and legal equality.
