With the subtitle "A Chronicle of the French Revolution", this wonderfully illustrated collection includes both the years before and the first phase of the French Revolution. It may be a great novel, and not for the occasional readers, but it is always intriguing and instructive, with a real sense of what is happening to us: the past really comes alive.
A small, lively publication that provides an outstanding survey of the French revolutionary revolutions through good text, illustrations and quotes. Instead, although the books lack the specific features of the armed forces, they provide a well-founded glimpse into the general historic significance of these wars as well as into the fundamental facts of the period and a frame for further work.
It is a large, highly described and highly critical book by an enlightenment specialist who focuses on these notions. Robespierre is for some the most intriguing figure of the French Revolution, and Scurr's autobiography is a really good study of his lifetime and a blatant case of disgrace.
Designed for early to intermediate learners, this collection offers an introduction to both the revolution and the history of it. Explaining the most important discussion topics and the "facts", the guide is very inexpensive. Concentrating on the breakdown of the "old regime" (and thus on the roots of the French Revolution), Don Joyle blends declaration with a wide overview of recent history, which has provided many different interpretation.
Be it as a accompanist to Doyle's Oxford Story (Pick 2) or just by itself, this is a very evenly-matched work. The story is largely penned from primordial source, and any interested readers may wish to investigate at least a few. It is the ideal introduction as it presents a collection of commented works on some of the most important topics and human beings.
This story, which has been created to compensate for what the writer considered an inappropriate accentuation of French history, explores the evolving French culture in the last ten years of the 18th cenury. In fact, "change" is too restricted an expression for the time' cramps of culture and culture, and Andress' novel is a finely tuned study.
Gough, who has completed one of the most bloody episodes in Europe's past, explores how the ambitions and ideas of liberty and equity have been translated into force and tyranny. This is a more special band, but since the Gurillotine, a terrorist engine, still predominates the more mortal extreme of our civilization, an enlightening one.
Terror was when the French Revolution went horribly awry, and in this volume Andress compiles a thorough analysis. There is nothing you can know about the opening years of the revolution without looking at what was going to happen next, and this will make you want to look elsewhere at some of the (often strange)ories.
