Quotations show how the events and circumstances of the French Revolution were perceived by contemporary observers
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This volume, the first in a projected series covering periods of major social upheaval in Western history, attempts to make the French Revolution more immediately felt. A lengthy preface summarizes differing theories of the Revolution, and each subsequent chapter contains an overview of events, a chronology, and eyewitness testimony. The latter consists of excerpts from letters, memoirs, speeches, and other documents in order to show the full spectrum of reactions by contemporaries. These excerpts are brief and do not include complete citations, making it difficult for them to be quoted in student papers. This is a history of emotions rather than dry facts. Its success depends on the reader; when used in conjunction with standard histories it will help breathe life in the period. (Index not seen.) For school, university, and public libraries.
