The Road to 1789

From Reform to Revolution in France

Book - 1992
Rate this:
The subject of the origins of the French Revolution is one of the most important and controversial themes in European history.   This fresh critical appraisal begins with a masterly exposition and assessment of recent scholarly debate on the subject, followed by a lucid analysis, supported by documentary evidence, of the multiple stresses which undermined the Old Regime.   The author concludes that a revolution was unavoidable because the Old Regime was incapable of reforming fundamental defects in its political structures, but it was the contingent circumstances of 1788-9 that made the Revolution unexpectedly radical.
