What People are saying about this

Simon Schama
“I have a seriously supersaturated library on the subject myself but would most certainly want this book for the insight and stimulation it offers. It is not just another item in the sprawling offerings on cultural history. It deals very specifically with the interest in representation, language, and rhetoric that are now at the center of some of the most interesting work being done on the French Revolution. On the English responses it is, in my view, the best set of essays on the subject that we have.”
