Editorial Reviews

Choice
"Roessler's well-written, nicely organized, and thoroughly researched study attempts to fill in many gaps concerning the activities of women during the course of the French Revolution from 1789 to 1795. Both scholarly and a delight to read, this study will benefit French Revolution scholars and general readers alike. Highly recommended." (March 1997)
