The Revolution in Provincial France: Aquitaine, 1789-1799

Synopsis

This scholarly account presents a provincial view of Revolutionary France and describes a region far removed from high politics in Paris. It shows how local conflicts and personal rivalries shaped events within the region, and emphasizes the importance of religion, war, peasant radicalism and commercial stagnation in defining the course of the Revolution in the south-west.
