About this title

Synopsis:

This book offers a unique synthesis of the long- and short-term causes of the French Revolution. Instead of focusing exclusively on developments within France, it places the country, and its revolution, within an international setting from the start. This book argues that the French Revolution stemmed from the pre-revolutionary state's converging failures in international and domestic affairs. The monarchy failed not only to remain in touch with changing social, intellectual, and political realities at home, but also to harness its citizens' ambitions and talents to the purpose of maintaining the country's international power and prestige. This analysis also provides a key to comprehending the course of events in revolutionary and post-revolutionary France--and an insight into why revolutionary movements broke out in the former USSR and its surrounding countries.

Book Description:

Arguing that the French Revolution stemmed from the pre-revolutionary state's converging failures in international and domestic affairs, this analysis reveals how the monarchy failed not only to remain in touch with changing social, intellectual and political realities, but also to harness its citizens' ambitions and talents.
