9780080342603: The French Revolution and the Creation of Modern Political Culture : The Transformation of Political Culture 1789-1848

This third volume in a much praised series on The French Revolution and the Creation of Modern Political Culture examines the way in which the Revolution has been portrayed in European thought and its impact upon the development of political philosophy in the nineteenth century. Opening with the influence of Burke and other contemporaries of the Revolution and the ensuing debate over the question "Why the Terror?", this volume explores such diverse themes as the legacy of the Revolution on the political and social evolution of Germany, England, Italy and Russia; the crisis it brought about in the Catholic Church; and the difficulties encountered in determining the end of the Revolution. By showing that the upheaval in European politics and philosophy caused by the French Revolution continued to shape nations, peoples and thought, the texts brought together in this volume permit a better understanding of the event's extraordinary complexity.

Review:

1989 Some books bring a steady light to bear on their subject. They inform the reader, but rarely excite him. Others, like the final volume of this grate triology, dazzle, puzzle and infuriate before enlightening him... Shock and disoreintation are the price for being in at the birth of this startling new way of conceptualizing the French Revolution. Before fleeing the structuralist scene, the reader may care to recall the bankruptcy of earlier interpretations, both Marxist and liberal. For those who wish to understand the Revolution in relation to the modern world, this work is the indispensable starting-point... -- John Mackerell, The English Historical Review

1991 ...a number of splendid contributions... a stimulating and thought provoking volume. -- French History
