Napoleon : from 18 Brumaire to Tilsit, 1799-1807 by Georges Lefebvre( Book )

170 editions published between 1935 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 5,154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the time when Napoleon Bonaparte assumed control of France, Europe and the French Revolution had been at war for over seven years, and except for a brief interruption, this conflict was to last until 1815. The 18 Brumaire did not in itself mark the end of an epoch. It might be more logical to say that the period of peace which followed the Treaty of Amiens was the dividing point between two eras. True, when considering the internal history of France, one sees that the coup d'état of Brumaire opened the way for the restoration of personal power. In this respect, the contrast between the Napoleonic and Revolutionary periods is well defined, but their essential unity cannot be ignored. It was to the Revolution that Bonaparte owed his marvellous destiny. He was able to force himself upon republican France precisely because an internal necessity fated that country to dictatorship as long as the partisans of the Old Regime strove to re-establish the monarchy with the help of foreign powers. - Introduction
The coming of the French Revolution, 1789 by Georges Lefebvre( Book )

96 editions published between 1939 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 3,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author disclaims any other intention than that of reconstructing the main outlines of the four acts into which he arranges the revolutionary happenings from roughly the summer of 1788 to October, 1789. These developments he calls the aristocratic, the bourgeois, the popular and the peasant revolutions. Moments of deepest dramatic intensity -- the storming of the Bastille, the unbelievable and mad night of August 4 which made a holocaust (at least on paper) of the Old Regime, the contagious sweep of the Great Fear, and the turbulent march of Paris on Versailles early in October -- all fall within that year of crisis. Brilliantly as Lefebvre treats them and the actors, he actually does far more than present them with sympathy, lucidity and understanding. For each one of these major phases is also placed in its historical setting. - Leo Gershoy, New York Herald Tribune, on back cover
The French Revolution by Georges Lefebvre( Book )

63 editions published between 1962 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the opening section, the author examines Europe and the world on the eve of the revolution, describing in detail not only the countries which were immediately affected by the cataclysm in France but also those which awakened slowly to the call of liberty. He then presents a vivid narrative of events in France, analyzing the series of revolts--by the aristocracy, the bourgeoisie, the towns, and the peasantry--which set in motion the inexorable course of social, economic, and political upheaval. The forces that propelled the revolution, as well as the personalities responsible for day-to-day decisions during this momentous period, are described with great insight."--From publisher
The Great Fear of 1789; rural panic in revolutionary France by Georges Lefebvre( Book )

109 editions published between 1932 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 2,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major work, graphically describes the panic, paranoia, and social chaos that sparked the Revolution. One of France's great historians analyzes the causes of the mass hysteria that overcame rural France during the summer of 1789, as hungry villagers flocked into towns to look for work or to beg for charity, and as vagrants and beggars choked the rural roads, threatening reprisals against householders who refused to give them shelter or a crust of bread. Originally published in 1983. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

The French Revolution from its origins to 1793 by Georges Lefebvre( Book )

38 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Internationally renowned as the greatest authority on the French Revolution, Georges Lefebvre combined impeccable scholarship with a lively writing style. His masterly overview of the history of the French Revolution has taken its rightful place as the definitive account. A vivid narrative of events in France and across Europe is combined with acute insights into the underlying forces that created the dynamics of the revolution, as well as the personalities responsible for day-to-day decisions during this momentous period. In tracing the web of intrigues and influences that transpired as the French Revolution, Lefebvre illuminates the fundamentals of historical interpretation and, at the same time, tells a story that will compel every reader."--Wheelers.co.nz
