The French Revolution: A Beginner’s Guide (repost)

Peter Davies, "The French Revolution: A Beginner’s Guide"
ISBN: 1851686932 | 2009 | EPUB | 184 pages | 742 KB

Blending narrative with analysis, Peter Davies explores a time of obscene opulence, mass starvation, and ground-breaking ideals; where the streets of Paris ran red with blood, and when even the efficient guillotine was unable to dispatch enough “counter-revolutionaries” for the needs of the Terror. Davies brings the subject up to date by considering the legacy of the revolution and how it continues to resonate in today’s France.
