French Revolution explained,
This review is from: Fiat Money Inflation in France: How It Came, What It Brought, and How It Ended (Paperback)
This is one of the great historical re-assessments of all time.
It makes sense, for the first time, of the French Revolution, which began in all the high minded ideals of the Enlightenment, but rapidly descended into the horrors of the Reign of Terror. Why? The answer is inflation - and this slim book explains exactly how it happened.
To anyone who is interested in the French Revolution - or indeed in the history of Europe in the 19th century, one can but say: read it!
