First published in 1935, as the seventh edition of an 1894 original, this book forms part of the Cambridge Historical Series. It was written by John Holland Rose (1855–1942), a renowned English historian who wrote widely on European history. The text analyses the French Revolution in terms of its interdependence with other movements and historical trends in Europe between 1789 and 1815, providing a comprehensive explanation of the influence of French ideas and policy on Europe. Connections are made between the earlier and later phases of the period, with historical change being treated as a continuous process, rather than a series of separate events. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in perspectives on the French Revolution and its broader impact.
