This review is from: The French Revolution: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
I have always been intrigued by the events of the French Revolution, partly because, as an A level History student, I have studied what a profound effect they had on the fight for political reform in 19th century Britain. However, being under an increasingly heavy workload I was understandably looking for a short introduction to the subject. Imagine my delight when I found this book!
"The French Revolution: A Very Short Introduction" is the perfect length for me. My favourite part is the introductory chapter, in which Doyle links the events of the Revolution with their representations in literature and contemporary viewpoints. The book is easily divided into causes and effects, allowing a clear understanding of not only the period in question, but those preceding and following. It also contains a very full bibliography, meaning that if I find some time I will be able to read up on the subject in more depth!
To conclude, I would strongly recommend the book to anyone, student or the general reader, who wishes to gain insight into this momentous event in history.
