"With the rebel-philosopher Rousseau as its focal point, volume 10 of The story of civilization progresses across a whole continent - to a Spain convulsed by war, to the Imperial Russian court of Catherine the Great, to Frederick the Great rebuilding Prussia. Crossing the North Sea to England we observe Britain with her colonies ... and the first disturbing wave of the Industrial Revolution that is to engulf and change the world. The circle is closed in the France of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI - with the death of Voltaire and with the breakdown and death of Rousseau - and finally with the storming of the Bastille. An old civilization is dying as the complex roots of the Revolution now reach deep into every stratum of society"--Container
