A decade of revolution, 1789-1799 by Crane Brinton( Book )

57 editions published between 1934 and 1983 in English and held by 2,278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents a successful attempt to reinterpret the Revolution in the light of modern research. The author admittedly writes 'sociological history, ' but let me hasten to assure any who may have developed a complex against this blend that, whether because of it or in spite of it, the quality of his history is good. His treatment is judicious. His characterization are apt. His writing is clear and vigorous with often an incisive observation that puts the issue in a new light or settles some disputed point more effectively than a page of argument

The Jacobins : an essay in the new history by Crane Brinton( Book )

36 editions published between 1930 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Jacobins were the most famous of the political clubs that fomented the French Revolution. Initially moderate, they are remembered mainly for instituting the Reign of Terror. Crane Brinton's The Jacobins was written in the 1930s, itself a decade of the violent centralization of unchecked political power. Brinton offers not an account of the actions of major figures, but an anatomy of Jacobinism, its membership, beliefs and political platform, the relations between the central Paris club and the regional groups, and how it evolved from moderation to tyranny. Brinton argues that when one considers the material facts about the Jacobins-- their social environment, occupations, and wealth--one finds evidence of their prosperity to justify predicting for them quiet, uneventful, conservative, thoroughly normal lives. But when one studies the records of their proceedings, one finds them violent, cruel, and intolerant. The Jacobins present a paradox. Their political being seems inconsistent with their actual intentions. The Jacobins presented for a brief time the spectacle of men acting without apparent regard for their material interests. As the brilliant new introduction by Howard G. Schneiderman indicates, this contradiction defines the Jacobins, and perhaps most other revolutionary movements."--Provided by publisher

The lives of Talleyrand by Crane Brinton( Book )

29 editions published between 1936 and 1963 in English and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord, prince de Bénévent, then prince de Talleyrand (French: [al mois d tal()̃ pei]; 1754?1838) was a French diplomat. He worked successfully from the regime of Louis XVI, through the French Revolution and then under Napoleon I, Louis XVIII, Charles X, and Louis-Philippe. Known since the turn of the 19th century simply by the name Talleyrand, he remains a figure that polarizes opinion. Some regard him as one of the most versatile, skilled and influential diplomats in European history, and some believe that he was a traitor, betraying in turn, the Ancien Régime, the French Revolution, Napoleon, and the Restoration. He is also notorious for leaving the Catholic Church after ordination to the priesthood and consecration to the episcopacy."--Wikipedia
