Reviewer comment
This is a classic study of the French Revolution. The author also wrote the classic comparisons of revolutions including this French example. But these is not much content devoted to economic affairs. The chapter titles provide a good outline of the subject matter. For this refer to Geoffrey Bruun's Europe and the French Imperium.
