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 everfalling
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! French Revolutions For Beginners will
present 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.
