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 )

18 editions published between 1975 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 450 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.

From Jacobin to liberal : Marc-Antoine Jullien, 1775-1848 by Marc-Antoine Jullien( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Welcomed the revolution of 1848, and died a few weeks before the election of Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte as president of the Second Republic. Drawn from books, pamphlets, reports, letters, book reviews, magazine articles, poems, and private notes and memoranda, Jullien's comments are supplemented here by letters that his mother wrote during the early years of the French Revolution and by articles by Jullien's collaborators in the Revue Encyclopedique. ("Robespierre, his Brother, and his sister are to dine with us today," his mother writes. "I am most curious to see him close up.") In Palmer's skilled hands, these selected materials from a now forgotten life vividly portray France's transition from revolutionary republicanism and the Terror through the Napoleonic years to the more placid liberalism of the nineteenth century
An economist in troubled times : writings by Jean Baptiste Say( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J.-B. Say is remembered most commonly as a disciple of Adam Smith and in particular as the author of what later economists have called Say's law: often simplified as the idea that "supply creates its own demand." Here the distinguished historian R.R. Palmer shows that Say was an interesting figure for a multitude of reasons. Say modified and extended some of Adam Smith's insights, became a friend and correspondent of Thomas Malthus and David Ricardo, and was the first professor of political economy in France. His life coincided with the French Revolution and its long aftermath and with the Industrial Revolution in Great Britain, on both of which he had much to say

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

6 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in English and held by 58 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. -- from back cover
