liberty, equality and fraternity
on 21 January 2017
The book guides the reader through this historic event by emphasizing the importance of the French Revolutionary principles; liberty, equality and fraternity. Doyle elaborates that the French Revolution had its origins in a series of late 18th century events and as a set of ideas, images, and memories in the minds of posterity. This is a powerful argument for the importance of history, as well as an example of its complexity.
