Synopsis

In the forty years after the Revolution of 1789, the peasants and former seigneurs of the isolated region of the Corbieres, Languedoc, fought a protracted battle over the consequences of revolutionary change. This social conflict culminated in the murder of two nobles by a band of villagers in the aftermath of the Revolution of 1830. This book offers important new perspectives on the French Revolution and its consequences.
