An anthology which stresses variety rather than consensus, this text is intended to acquaint the reader with the works of many of the leading historians of the French Revolution--the great names of
the past as well as present-day scholars. Special prominence has not been given to any one school of revolutionary studies; rather, selections by historians of different countries with various political persuasions,
religious beliefs, and historical methodologies have been included. Two chapters have been added in this edition along with several examples of revolutionary paintings.
