“Amid the intellectual murkiness of the European scene, a few bright flames are burning: as witness the work of Eric Hazan.” —New Left Review

“A luminous book … resurrecting, day by day, week by week, the essential moments of this singular epoch, where the most unbridled enthusiasm, tragedy, courage, treachery mingle together … an account capable of dispelling the boredom of previous conflicting accounts. With this book, with its multiple focal points and perspectives, which allow the clamor of the French Revolution to be heard … a new momentum is found.” —Marianne

“A story of the Revolution which vividly revives the chain of events, marking the rhythm of its episodes and their brutal accelerations, and the phases of calm which succeeded them.” —Sciences Humaines
