From the Publisher:

Written on a level appropriate for today's undergraduates, this up-to-date survey of the French Revolution and Napoleonic period offers a shorter, more concise alternative to the long, detailed texts more suited to advanced study. It introduces students to the major events that make up 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.

From the Back Cover:

This concise, up-to-date survey of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Period introduces the events of the revolution as well as its political, social, and cultural origins. Incorporating the latest research, this volume covers everything from the pre-Revolutionary crisis and the storming of the Bastille to the effort to create a constitutional regime and the overthrow of the monarchy to the Jacobean dictatorship and the Reign of Terror to Napoleon's Consulate and Empire. It also examines the long-term consequences of the Revolution for France and the world. The second edition of A Short History of the French Revolution has been revised to include expanded coverage of several critical topics and greater coverage of the events leading up to the revolution and its early years. It also includes a wealth of important contemporaneous documents within the text where they are under discussion. An essential single-volume history of the French Revolution for any reader who wishes a greater understanding of the events and consequences of that period.
