French Revolutions For Beginners examines the several bloody revolutions and counter-revolutions throughout the course of the 19th century and the constant upheavals and disruptions in France?s ever changing political landscape from 1789-1900. While most people have some familiarity with names like Louis XVI and Napoleon, the details of what exactly happened during the French Revolution?apart from pithy royal pronouncements about cake eating and the ever-falling blade of the guillotine?are often difficult to understand, and for good reason: there were a whopping 15 changes of government in less than a century!
The legacy of the French Revolutions remains with us today; we see it all over the world when an oppressed people rise up against an authoritarian regime demanding their rights as citizens be recognized.
French Revolutions For Beginners presents the major political figures, events and hot-button political issues of this extremely violent, chaotic, confusing - but always exciting - period in a way that is accessible, interesting, and fun to both history buffs and the neophyte alike.
