Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 24 May 2007
I knew nothing about the French revolution before I bought this book, so decided to give myself a brief introduction. The book is organised into chapters, each covering a totally different aspect of the French revolution. The book's main emphasis is on the legacy of the French revolution in its aftermath, and as such is slightly weak in terms of its explanation of the revolution itself. Consequently, whilst this book would give you a good overview of what the aftermath of the revolution was, and its significance to today, you may find the coverage of the revolution itself rather brief. Indeed, one minute we are at a conference in Paris, the next we are with Napoleon's armies in Egypt, with the reader not quite sure as to how we made this leap. In conclusion, the book is good for those who want to know about the legacy of the revolution, but less so for those interested in the events of the revolution itself.
