Description
Blending narrative with analysis, Peter Davies explores a time of obscene opulence, mass starvation, and ground-breaking ideals; where the streets of Paris ran red with blood, and when even the efficient guillotine was unable to despatch enough "counter-revolutionaries" for the needs of the Terror. Davies brings the subject up to date by considering the legacy of the revolution and how it continues to resonate in today's France. Dr Peter Davies is senior lecturer in History at the University of Huddersfield
