Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An excellent two-volume study of France's bicentennial commemoration of its most famous revolution. . . . A remarkable, comprehensive account."—International Labor and Working-Class History
Library Journal
Adieu 89, published in France in 1993, is the French version of this volume by Kaplan (history, Cornell), who has other books about 18th-century France to his credit (Provisioning Paris: Merchants and Millers in the Grain and Flour Trade During the Eighteenth Century, Cornell Univ. Pr. 1984). This volume is written in four separate sections, or books, each built around a central organizing theme. Book 1 is an excellent historiographical explanation of the dominant views of the legacy of the French Revolution. Book 2 views the production of the bicentennial celebration from the center, and Book 3 compares the center to the periphery. Book 4 deals with the commemoration in Paris. This work is very technical and is recommended only for academic libraries.-Harry Willems, Kansas Lib. System, Iola
