This book provides an interpretation of the French Revolution that
is both thematic and accessible to the general reader. The
discussion includes an analysis of the historiography of the
subject, and reviews the range of literature produced around the
recent Bicentenary. Insisting that the French Revolution had an
important social dimension, Alan Forrest demonstrates that the
revolutionaries, even the most extreme of them, were committed to
an ordered society. He argues that in destroying the political
institutions and the corporate structures of the Ancien Regime,
they were conscious of the need to invent a new order of their own,
one that would be consistent with their ideology.

Chapters focus on the initial crisis of 1789, on the political and
social experiments of the revolutionary years, and on the impact of
war and counter-revolution. The study covers the period up to 1799,
looking forward where appropriate to the Napoleonic Empire. The
author's succinct and penetrating overview of events ensures that
The French Revolution will be welcomed by all students of
this fascinating and turbulent period in European history.
