The rights of man, the Reign of Terror : the story of the French Revolution by Susan Banfield( )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1789, France was a land divided. Louis XVI needed money and was forced to ask for the consent of the nobles. The nobles wanted to cut back on the King's power, but to freeze out the newly rich merchants. Merchants wanted to join the nobility, but keep the workers and peasants in their places. Workers wanted cheap bread, but peasants wanted good prices for their grain. New ideas about the rights of man and doubts about the role of the church inflamed passions on all sides. Within four years, France adopted the most far-reaching reforms ever seen. But alongside reform, the Revolution brought terror. Susan Banfield tells the story of these dramatic changes through the lives of people and the broad sweep of events. Cafe chatter, revolutionary festivals, and changing fashions appear side by side with declarations, debates, and pamphlets. Here is an account of the color, drama, and tragedy of the revolution that shaped the course of France and Europe for over two hundred years

Ethnic Conflicts in Schools. Multicultural Issues by Susan Banfield( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book for young readers explores ethnic conflict in the schools. Public schools in the United States are among some of the places where members of a country's different ethnic and racial groups are brought together and required to work together more closely. A racial group is a group of people who share certain physical traits and often share a common history and culture. An ethnic group is one whose members are bound together by a shared history, culture, nationality, or religion. The United States has a long history of tensions between racial and ethnic groups, exacerbated by refusal to accept difference, whether of skin color or of language. Racial and ethnic conflict is becoming more common in schools. The largest causes are prejudice based on negative ideas about the group and distrust based on differences. Economic factors, politics, and lack of education also contribute. Avoiding and resolving conflict in the schools is difficult, but not impossible. Many tested techniques are available, and, as two urban case studies demonstrate, progress can be made. A glossary and a list of nine sources for further reading are included. (Sld)
