5.0 out of 5 stars Recommend to all, 29 Jan 2003
this has a really good introduction with some info on the author and context. There is good commentry on words you mightn't understand as you go along and also includes Marlowe's B text at the end. I really enjoyed the story in this and when studying it for a level loved analysing all the hidden meanings and the relevence to Marlowes audience. This edition is popular among students and i recommend to all - it has good quality pages and space for notes.

4.0 out of 5 stars DETAIL - not for the beginner, woohoo, 29 Jan 2003
lots of detail in the events before (woohoo, not just talking about events during) the revolution. Nice details on Louis' mood and speculation over possible depression problems. A good chapter on Turgot. Definately not a book for the beginner (which is an unusual characteristic of the many french revolution books), you really need a background knowlege of the revolution to understand it, but then i doubt the aim of the book is to generalise. Very good, i enjoyed it.
