France 1715-1804 by Gwynne Lewis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


France 1715-1804 will give students an excellent insight into all aspects of the lives of people passing through one of the most extraordinary periods in modern history. Lewis's book is a major new study of eighteenth century French society and politics which focuses on the struggles, beliefs and political significance of the poor. It argues that failure to deal with the social problems of exploitation and poverty explains, in large measure, the collapse of the ancient regime and the 'democratic revolution' of 1789-94. This text is for undergraduate courses in French social history, or courses specifically looking at the history of the French revolution.
