—Antonia Fraser, bestselling author of Marie Antoinette
"Truly riveting reading."
—Michael Hochedlinger, International History Review
"Resurrecting a wealth of historical documentation, [Price] has scrupulously detailed the previously unknown underground diplomacy of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, creating a significant contribution to the analysis of the French Revolution."
"This exhaustively researched study should be the definitive diplomatic history of the fall of Louis XVI."
"The most important book written on the subject for a very long time."
—T.C.W. Blanning, author of The Culture of Power and the Power of Culture
"Through brilliant detective work, Price has uncovered documents that shed a definitive light on the French Crown's policy toward the revolution. This definitive study moves well beyond such works as Michel Vovelle's The Fall of the French Monarchy."
"Fascinating and genuinely groundbreaking....a truly revolutionary book."
—Andrew Roberts, Sunday Telegraph (U.K.)
