French Revolution

    By

    Blending narrative with analysis, Peter Davies explores a time of obscene opulence, mass starvation, and ground-breaking ideals; where the streets of Paris ran red with blood, and when even the efficient guillotine was unable to despatch enough "counter-revolutionaries" for the needs of the Terror. Davies brings the subject up to date by considering the legacy of the revolution and how it continues to resonate in today's France.
