Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"At every stage in world history, a core group of individuals has been the driving force behind the most critical events. They have defined the issues, pushed for change, debated, and led others for a cause." And it is people after all that go to war. In this short but poignant reference book, we begin with the larger view of what made the French Revolution and the events recorded in history. The beginning summary concludes with Napoleon Bonaparte taking over the floundering government. Periodic pictures throughout the book depict widely known events such as the storm on the Bastille, the guillotining of King Louis XVI, a grotesque scene from the Reign of Terror, and portraits of events and persons involved. After the introduction comes fifteen individual histories of the influential people shaping the conflict. Among the famous is Thomas Paine, an author advancing the ideas behind liberty, Louis XVI, the weak and ineffective king of France, Marie Antoinette, a lavish and hated queen, Joseph-Ignace Guillotin, inventor of the famous execution device, and George Danton, leader of the reign of terror. A brief chronology and an index provide useable references. 2006, Blackbirch Press, Ages 8 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 7-10-Stewart chronicles the events of the French Revolution through short biographies of 15 individuals prominent in that struggle. Each person garners a full-page color portrait, and there are many additional reproductions. The encyclopedia-type entries are basic but limited; Stewart fails to make use of the abundance of intriguing, insightful quotes by and about these individuals, and aside from birth and death dates and education, covers only material pertaining to the Revolution. The map doesn't show any French cities or regions (not even Paris!); there is no glossary; and accent marks on names are omitted. There are also several errors. Due to the narrow focus, this title cannot replace standard biographies or historical studies. Sean Connolly's The French Revolution (Heinemann Library, 2003) references many of the people highlighted here and is more thorough.-Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
