Concise, convincing and exciting, this is Christopher Hibbert's
brilliant account of the events that shook eighteenth-century
Europe to its foundation. With a mixture of lucid storytelling and
fascinating detail, he charts the French Revolution from its
beginnings at an impromptu meeting on an indoor tennis court at
Versailles in 1789, right through to the `coup d'etat' that brought
Napoleon to power ten years later. In the process he explains the
drama and complexities of this epoch-making era in the compelling
and accessible manner he has made his trademark. Writing in The
Times, Richard Holmes described the book as `A spectacular replay
of epic action ...' while The Good Book Guide called it,
`Unquestionably the best popular history of the French Revolution'.
