Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The emerging global analysis of the French Revolution’s events and legacies expresses a new generation’s search for historical meanings in the transitional decades of 1775-1815. McPhee’s volume has no single theme or unifying vision, but its diversity suggests the continuing vitality of a field that is constantly fragmenting into new themes and perspectives.”  (H-France,  January 2014)

“The Revolution will never be exhausted as a subject of historical interest; this volume is an excellent survey of the current state of research.”  (Reference Reviews, 1 November 2013)

"Of greatest interest to specialists and graduate students, this will be an important acquisition for collections serving this readership. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates and above.”  (Choice, 1 October 2013)

“Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in the Revolution, but especially an interest in modern scholarship.”  (Reading Treasure, 5 March 2013)
