The French Revolution of 1789 was followed by a century of upheaval, rebellion, and change. Napoleonic dictatorship, monarchical restoration, Second Republic, and Second Empire all rapidly succeeded one another, and it was not until the advent of the Third Republic in the 1870s that politicalstability was restored. The period 1788-1880 thus possesses a unity as Revolutionary France, though it is seldom treated as a whole. In this volume, a team of leading international historians explore the major issues of politics and society, together with the dynamics of culture, gender, nationalidentity, and overseas empire, during this vital period of French history.
Malcolm Crook is Professor of French History at Keele University. He has served as Secretary to The Society for the Study of French History and has recently succeeded Professor Richard Bonney as Editor of the associated OUP journal, French History. He has taught at Keele University since 1972.
