- Robert Darnton writes this small essay and tries to decide what exactly was revolutionary about the French Revolution. Just because it was a revolution does not make it revolutionary. Darnton explores this idea throughout his article. As Darnton develops the essay, he detail three main things that he believes made the French Revolution revolutionary: the involvement of such a large portion of the nation, the idea of popular sovereignty and the incredible amount of death the occurred during this time period.
- There was a loud thunk as the blade hit, and then a roar of the crowd as another nobleman s head was raised, after being cut off. The French Revolution (1789-1795) was one if not the most bloodiest revolutions ever in history. There were three social classes in France known as the Estates-General.
- When Louis XVI accepted the final version of the completed constitution in September 1791, a young and still obscure provincial lawyer and member of the National Assembly named Maximilian Robespiere evaluated the work of two years and concluded, The Revolution is over.
- French Revolution, cataclysmic political and social upheaval, extending from 1789 to 1799. The revolution resulted, among other things, in the overthrow of the monarchy in France and in the establishment of the First Republic. It was generated by a vast complex of causes and produced an equally vast complex of consequences.
- According to Joseph Weber, foster brother of Queen Antoinette, there were three primary causes of the French revolution ‘the disorder of the finances, the state of mind, and the war in America.’ The ‘disorder in the finances’ acknowledged that the bankruptcy of the monarchy opened the doors to defiance of the King’s authority.
-  He is one of the few historians who can move comfortably from France to Germany to the vast Habsburg empire stretching from Belgium to the Balkans, and he has filled in the remaining gaps with extraordinarily vast reading.
- French Revolution, cataclysmic political and social upheaval, extending from 1789 to 1799. The revolution resulted, among other things, in the overthrow of the Bourbon monarchy in France and in the establishment of the First Republic. It was generated by a vast complex of causes, the most important of which were the inability of the ruling classes of nobility, clergy, and bourgeoisie to come to grips with the problems of state, the indecisive nature of the monarch, impoverishment of the workers, the intellectual ferment of the Age of Enlightenment, and the example of the American Revolution.
- The French Revolution evokes many different emotions and controversial issues in that some believe it was worth the cost and some don’t. There is no doubt that the French Revolution did have major significance in history. Not only did the French gain their independence, but an industrial revolution also took place.
- Islam began in Arabia during the seventh century common era. Islam is the youngest of all monotheistic religions of the western world and despite it’s later development after Judaism and Christianity, there are nearly one billion believers in existence today.
- The “Glorious Revolution” in England was the greatest revolution of all. It was started in England in 1 88. It was called the “Glorious Revolution” because of a couple of reasons, one because there was not one war in the entire revolution.
- Like any other great event in history, there was much more to the Revolutionary War than is seen on the surface. It is true that the war was fought for intellectual freedoms, as well as political and economical freedoms. However, the mere ideas of free intellect and politics and economics could not have grown into a nation-wide motive for war without gossips, rumor mills, pamphlets, or boycotts.
- The Spanish Civil War is often ignored by many nations, for the simple reason of them supporting those who would eventually declare war on them. In the early 1930 s, a miniscule republic emerged in the country of Spain. At this time most of Europe was already a republic, but this was Spain s first attempt at this.
- The Great Cat Massacre with out a doubt has one of the most unusual titles ever created especially for a book about history. Now this unusual title perhaps fits this book better than any other straight – forward title Mr. Darnton could have conjured. You see the text contained in the book isn t just your standardized, boring, and redundant view of history.
- The making of America was a collaboration of colonial experimentation, a unique blend of different people and culture, and a slow emmergence of concerted political ideals. Some colonies had measureable success, some did not, and one entirely dissappeared.
- Washington sent his French aide, the Marquis de Lafayette, to Virginia in the spring of 1781 with a few Continental troops, and these were reinforced from time to time until in June when Cornwallis pulled back down the Yorktown Peninsula. Henry Clinton told Cornwallis to send all his men to New York to help attack Philadelphia.
- In his book, The Nation Takes Shape, Marcus Cunliffe outlines what he calls a half a century of immense progress. He focuses in on the period of time from after the Constitution is drafted to the end of Andrew Jackson s presidency. (1789-1837). In his book he outlines the major events pertaining to the evolution of our newly independent country.
- Every generation has its middle class, majority, and norm, which are decided by that era’s standards of behavior and thought. Similarly, each generation has a group that rejects these standards and rebels against the norm. In the 1950’s a group of American writers that exemplified this behavior formed.
- Before I start my paper on the French Revolution, I would like to give a little background information about it. The French Revolution began in 1789 and lasted for about ten years. Before it ran its course, the political and social order of France had been dramatically altered.
- “Burke was both a defender of a traditional, hierarchical social and political order and a believer in the necessity and equity of a pure capitalist economic order.” (C B McPherson, Burke, p71). `To what extent is this an accurate assessment of Burke? `In order to answer this question I will first briefly discuss Burke’s personal background relative to the social and political system in the England of the time, before examining his ideas and whether or not these justify McPherson’s statement.
- France was an absolute monarchy. Louis XIV (1643 ? 1715) was the envy of all other rulers in Europe. During his reign he had centralized the government and had encouraged trade and manufacture. His undoing was the long list of over ambitious wars that he had participated in.
