A social history of the French Revolution by Norman Hampson( Book )

108 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French Revolution was the product of wide and deep social tensions that developed in France during the second half of the eighteenth century. The revolutionary movement which began in 1787 therefore consisted of a number of separate but inter-related conflicts which eventually disrupted every aspect of society throughout the whole country. It was the intensity and variety of these divisions that raised the Revolution to a pitch of extreme violence and left France riddled with internal dissension that has lasted until the present day. This book analyzes the nature of these social conflicts, within their political framework. The course of events is described in sufficient detail to provide a background for readers without previous knowledge of the subject, while the particular attention devoted to provincial France and the author's exploitation of recent research offer unfamiliar evidence and controversial interpretations to the specialist. The result is both a picture of the supreme crisis in French society and an examination of social attitudes and aspirations whose influence has been felt in France and throughout the world from the time of the Revolution to the present. -- Back cover
The first European revolution, 1776-1815 by Norman Hampson( Book )

37 editions published between 1969 and 1979 in 4 languages and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most significant changes during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic period were in the realm of ideas. The French Revolution ended the era of aristocratic conservatism, enlightened rationalism and sentimental deism. By the time of Napoleon's eclipse, Idealist philosophy and Romanticism -- both of which assumed disharmony and national conflict -- had replaced these attitudes. The author shows that this ideological shift rather than manifestations of class rivaly explains the actions of the French Revolutionaries. His perspective also throws new light on the impact of Revolutionary and Napoleonic France on the rest of Europe
