Internationally renowned as the greatest authority on the French Revolution, Georges Lefebvre combined impeccable scholarship with a lively writing style. His masterly overview of the history of the French Revolution has taken its rightful place as the definitive account. A vivid narrative of events in France and across Europe is combined with acute insights into the underlying forces that created the dynamics of the revolution, as well as the personalities responsible for day-to-day decisions during this momentous period.

Reviews

'This is more than a history of the French Revolution. It covers all of Europe during the revolutionary period!it also breaks new ground in its account of international relations, and sets the wars of intervention in their true light.' - A.J.P. Taylor
