Product Details

Praise

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

“Both an evocative narrative of a fascinating period and a passionate argument for the continued relevance of the revolution and its lessons.”
Irish Times

“A riveting popular history.”
—Tobias Grey, Spectator

A People’s History of the French Revolution chronicles the 1789 upheaval in all its guillotine gore and popular fury … The combination of bottom-up testimony with quick authorial intelligence lends the history a vivid immediacy.”
—Ian Thomson, Independent

“A vivid, lucid, informative, detailed account of the French Revolution.”
Reviews in History

“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.”
