Most widely held works by Alfred Cobban
A history of modern France by Alfred Cobban( Book )

228 editions published between 1957 and 1990 in 5 languages and held by 2,748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Begins with the refashioning of French laws and institutions under Napoleon Bonaparte in 1799 and ends with the Commune of Paris in 1871. While there is an ample supply of 'facts', the author devotes most attention to the great turning-points of the period; he aims not to force agreement with his own interpretation but rather to stimulate readers to ask their own questions and formulate their own judgments
The social interpretation of the French Revolution by Alfred Cobban( Book )

116 editions published between 1962 and 1999 in 6 languages and held by 2,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfred Cobban saw the French Revolution as central to the 'grand narrative of modern history', but provided a salutary corrective to many celebrated social explanations, determinist and otherwise, of its origins and development." "A generation later this concise but powerful intervention is now reissued with a new introduction by Gwynne Lewis, providing students with both a context for Cobban's own arguments and an assessment of the course of Revolutionary studies in the wake of The Social Interpretation. This book remains a handbook of revisionism for Anglo-Saxon scholars, and is essential reading for all students of French history at undergraduate level and above."--Jacket
