A history of the modern world by R. R Palmer( Book )

215 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 4,433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'History of the Modern World' is a careful, well-written narrative of major events from the late Middle Ages to the political and religious conflicts at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It offers a wide-ranging survey that helps readers understand both the complexities of great events (e.g., the French Revolution, the First World War, or the collapse of great imperial systems) and the importance of historical analysis. It also provides a careful summary of the modern political changes that have affected the social and cultural development of all modern cultures. Throughout the book's lifetime, 'A History of the Modern World' has been hailed as an elegantly written historical narrative, filled with analysis and balanced historical insights as well as its traditional attention to the processes of historical change, conflict, and political transformations"--Amazon

The school of the French Revolution : a documentary history of the College of Louis-le-Grand and its director, Jean-François Champagne, 1762-1814 by R. R Palmer( Book )

21 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The College of Louis-le-Grand, now the premier lycée of France, is the only school with a connected history of education from the ancien régime to modern times. It was the only school never to close during the French Revolution, and its experience offers a new perspective on the fate of educational institutions in times of revolutionary change. In this book a noted historian describes the French college of the ancien régime and tells how it withstood crises of dissolution and reconstruction, dispersion of teachers and students, academic radicalism, loss of endowments, war, inflation, and political terror, to emerge in 1808 as a key element in Napoleon's Imperial University. R.R. Palmer's introduction illuminates the original documents, which are here translated for the first time. These documents supply valuable insight not only into the school's history, but also into the origins of the modern French educational system. From them emerges a portrait of the school's remarkable director, Jean-François Champagne, who guided his institution through the calamitous years of the Revolution. Originally published in 1975.

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Militærhistorie. Beskrivelse af revolutionshæren - eller rettere af den franske hær, som kæmpede under, gennem og efter den store franske revolution, i årene fra 1789 op gennem konsulatet og direktoriet, som gik over i kejserdømmet 1804. Der er delte meninger om hvornår revolutionen officielt slutter; bogen her går til Napoleon's kup 18. Brumaire, 1799. Så at sige alle Napoleon's generaler kom, som ham selv, fra revolutionshæren, som i modsætning til den tidliger franske hær, under kongedømmet, gav så rige muligheder for avancement for de dygtige uanset baggrund. Den franske revolutionshær vandt en række strålende sejre, trods dårlig udrustning og uddannelse og organisation i mere traditionel hærforstand. Bogen er en engelsk oversættelse af den originale franske udgave, fra 1979

The coming of the French Revolution, 1789 by Georges Lefebvre( Book )

22 editions published between 1947 and 1979 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Coming of the French Revolution remains essential reading for anyone interested in the origins of this great turning point in the formation of the modern world. First published in 1939, on the eve of the Second World War, and suppressed by the Vichy government, this classic work explains what happened in France in 1789, the first year of the French Revolution. Georges Lefebvre wrote history "from below"--a Marxist approach. Here, he places the peasantry at the center of his analysis, emphasizing the class struggles in France and the significant role they played in the coming of the revolution. Eloquently translated by the historian R. R. Palmer and featuring an introduction by Timothy Tackett that provides a concise intellectual biography of Lefebvre and a critical appraisal of the book, this Princeton Classics edition continues to offer fresh insights into democracy, dictatorship, and insurrection
