Arthur Young (1741–1820) was a renowned English writer on agriculture, economics and social statistics. First published by Cambridge in 1929, this volume contains selections from Young's Travels, relating to observations made in France around the time of the Revolution. The selections, largely taken from Part I of the Travels, are notable for containing first-hand descriptions of public affairs and working conditions. The rigour and intelligence of these descriptions provide an unrivalled document of this critical moment in French history.
