Peter McPhee serves as a professorial fellow at the University of Melbourne, and is an internationally esteemed historian of modern France. He lives in Abbotsford, Australia.


"McPhee ... skillfully and with consummate clarity recounts one of the most complex events in modern history... [This] extraordinary work is destined to be the standard account of the French Revolution for years to come."-Publishers Weekly (starred review) Publishers Weekly "Richly detailed... finds way to both revivify and dissect the revolutionary passions through not just Paris, but throughout France, it's colonies and eventually the rest of the world."-Ruth Scurr, Financial Times -- Ruth Scurr Financial Times "Articulate and perceptive ... Numerous histories of the French Revolution exist; while many are good, none is so current on the literature and lucidly presented as this. Scholars and history lovers will rejoice."-David Keymer, Library Journal (starred review) -- David Keymer Library Journal "Deeply satisfying and masterfully written ... [a] fine and illuminating book."-David Walton, Dallas Morning News -- David Walton Dallas Morning News "Any card-carrying historian must record with admiration Peter McPhee's remarkable mastery of the literature, the debates, and the generations of interpretation about the French Revolution... McPhee's splendid book - historiographically astute, sensitive to moral as well as political and social positions, beautifully written - provides a guide through the complexities of the Revolution and reflects on its legacy.-Robert Aldrich, Australian Book Review -- Robert Aldrich Australian Book Review "This splendid and accessible synthesis, lavishly illustrated with some striking visual images, will surely become the standard text in English... Succeeds in the daunting task of encompassing a host of issues in a comprehensible fashion."-Malcolm Crook, History -- Malcolm Crook History "Transforms our understanding of this epochal event, focusing squarely on the importance of developments in the provinces while offering a fluent and compelling narrative of the whole catastrophe."-Jonathan Wright, Catholic Herald -- Jonathan Wright Catholic Herald
