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

110 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,684 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 1,159 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

Saint-Just by Norman Hampson( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Louis Antoine Léon de Saint-Just (French pronunciation: {7f200b}[s̃{7f0292}yst]; 25 August 1767 ? 28 July 1794), usually known as Saint-Just, was a military and political leader during the French Revolution. The youngest of the deputies elected to the National Convention in 1792, Saint-Just rose quickly in their ranks and became a major leader of the government of the French First Republic. He spearheaded the movement to execute King Louis XVI and later drafted the radical French Constitution of 1793. He became the closest confidant of Maximilien Robespierre, and served with him as one of the commissioners of the powerful Committee of Public Safety. Dispatched as a commissar to the army during its rocky start in the French Revolutionary Wars, Saint-Just imposed severe discipline, and he was credited by many for the army's subsequent revival at the front. Back in Paris, he supervised the consolidation of Robespierre's power through a ruthless and bloody program of intimidation. In his relatively brief time on the historical stage, he became the enduring public face of the Reign of Terror, full of dark zeal and energy. Dubbed the "Angel of Death", Saint-Just organized the arrests and prosecutions of many of the most famous figures of the Revolution. Ultimately Saint-Just himself was arrested in the violent episode of 9 Thermidor and executed the next day with Robespierre and their allies. In histories of the Revolution, their deaths at the guillotine mark the end of the Reign of Terror."--Wikipedia
