Histoire mondiale de la France by Collectif Book Resume:

" Ce ne serait pas trop de l'histoire du monde pour expliquer la France " Jules Michelet, Introduction à l'histoire universelle (1831) Voici une histoire de France, de toute la France, en très longue durée qui mène de la grotte Chauvet aux événements de 2015. Une histoire qui ne s'embarrasse pas plus de la question des origines que de celle de l'identité, mais prend au large le destin d'un pays qui n'existe pas séparément du monde, même si parfois il prétend l'incarner tout entier. Une histoire qui n'abandonne pas pour autant la chronologie ni le plaisir du récit, puisque c'est par dates qu'elle s'organise et que chaque date est traitée comme une petite intrigue. Réconciliant démarche critique et narration entraînante, l'ouvrage réunit, sous la direction de Patrick Boucheron, un collectif d'historiennes et d'historiens, tous attachés à rendre accessible un discours engagé et savant. Son enjeu est clair : il s'agit de prendre la mesure d'une histoire mondiale de la France, c'est-à-dire de raconter la même histoire – nul contre-récit ici – qui revisite tous les lieux de mémoire du récit national, mais pour la déplacer, la dépayser et l'élargir. En un mot : la rendre simplement plus intéressante ! Ce livre est joyeusement polyphonique. Espérons qu'un peu de cette joie saura faire front aux passions tristes du moment. Directeur d'ouvrage : Patrick Boucheron est professeur au Collège de France. Coordination : Nicolas Delalande est professeur associé au Centre d'histoire de Sciences Po ; Florian Mazel est professeur à l'université Rennes 2 ; Yann Potin est chargé d'études documentaires aux Archives nationales ; Pierre Singaravélou est professeur à l'université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne.

The French Revolution, 1789-1799 by Peter McPhee Book Resume:

This book provides a succinct yet up-to-date and challenging approach to the French Revolution of 1789-1799 and its consequences. Peter McPhee provides an accessible and reliable overview and one which deliberately introduces students to central debates among historians. The book has two main aims. One aim is to consider the origins and nature of the Revolution of 1789-99. Why was there a Revolution in France in 1789? Why did the Revolution follow its particular course after 1789? When was it 'over'? A second aim is to examine the significance of the Revolutionary period in accelerating the decay of Ancien Regime society. How 'revolutionary' was the Revolution? Was France fundamentally changed as a result of it? Of particular interest to students will be the emphasis placed by the author on the repercussions of the Revolution on the practives of daily life: the lived experience of the Revolution. The author's recent work on the environmental impact of the Revolution is also incorporated to provide a lively, modern, and rounded picture of France during this critical phase in the development of modern Europe.

Anatomie de la terreur - Le processus révolutionnaire (1787-1793) by Timothy Tackett Book Resume:

Comment l'élan démocratique de 1789 a-t-il pu donner naissance à la violence terroriste de 1793 ? Cette question obsédait déjà les contemporains, qui y voyaient non seulement un défi politique et une épreuve morale mais aussi un scandale logique. " Ce qui sera à jamais incompréhensible, c'est le contraste inouï de nos principes et de nos folies ", écrit le révolutionnaire Dominique-Joseph Garat dès 1795. Timothy Tackett n'instruit pas le procès de la Révolution, il décrit le processus révolutionnaire. Dans un livre très neuf, s'appuyant sur les correspondances, pour la plupart inédites des acteurs des journées révolutionnaires, le grand historien américain restitue le sens des événements et des engagements, au plus près de la manière dont ils furent vécus, et des émotions politiques qui s'y exprimèrent. Après avoir expliqué dans Par la volonté du peuple (1997) comment l'on devenait révolutionnaire, l'auteur montre ici avec brio comment l'on peut devenir terroriste. Traduit de l'anglais (États-Unis) par Serge Chassagne Professeur à l'université de Californie, Timothy Tackett est spécialiste de la Révolution française. Plusieurs de ses livres ont été traduits en français, dont Par la volonté du peuple. Comment les députés de 1789 sont devenus révolutionnaires (Albin Michel, 1997) et Le roi s'enfuit. Varennes et l'origine de la Terreur (La Découverte, 2004 et 2007).

The Coming of the French Revolution by Georges Lefebvre Book Resume:

The Coming of the French Revolution remains essential reading for anyone interested in the origins of this great turning point in the formation of the modern world. First published in 1939, on the eve of the Second World War, and suppressed by the Vichy government, this classic work explains what happened in France in 1789, the first year of the French Revolution. Georges Lefebvre wrote history "from below"—a Marxist approach. Here, he places the peasantry at the center of his analysis, emphasizing the class struggles in France and the significant role they played in the coming of the revolution. Eloquently translated by the historian R. R. Palmer and featuring an introduction by Timothy Tackett that provides a concise intellectual biography of Lefebvre and a critical appraisal of the book, this Princeton Classics edition continues to offer fresh insights into democracy, dictatorship, and insurrection.

L’Ancien régime et la Révolution by Alexis de Tocqueville Book Resume:

« Le livre que je publie en ce moment n'est point une histoire de la Révolution, histoire qui a été faite avec trop d'éclat pour que je songe à la refaire; c'est une étude sur cette Révolution. Les Français ont fait en 1789 le plus grand effort auquel se soit jamais livré aucun peuple, afin de couper pour ainsi dire en deux leur destinée, et de séparer par un abîme ce qu'ils avaient été jusque-là de ce qu'ils voulaient être désormais. Dans ce but, ils ont pris toutes sortes de précautions pour ne rien emporter du passé dans leur condition nouvelle; ils se sont imposé toutes sortes de contraintes pour se façonner autrement que leurs pères; ils n'ont rien oublié enfin pour se rendre méconnaissables. »

Penser la Révolution française by François Furet Book Resume:

La Révolution française peut être interprétée à la fois comme le produit de ce qu'elle a appelé l'Ancien Régime, et comme l'avènement de la civilisation où nous vivons depuis. Dans le premier cas, elle est le grand spectacle de ce qui s'est passé avant elle ; dans le second, elle inaugure le cours de l'égalité et de la démocratie modernes. Ce livre est une tentative pour la penser sous ces deux aspects, en renouant avec des questions posées par la tradition historiographique du XIXe siècle.

The Oxford Handbook of Local and Regional Democracy in Europe by John Loughlin,Frank Hendriks,Anders Lidström Book Resume:

The Oxford Handbook of Local and Regional Democracy in Europe analyses the state of play of democracy at the subnational level in the 27 member states of the EU plus Norway and Switzerland. It places subnational democracy in the context of the distinctive Anglo, the French, the German and Scandinavian state traditions in Europe asking to what extent these are still relevant today. The Handbook adapts Lijphart's theory of democracy and applies it to the subnational levels in all the country chapters. A key theoretical issue is whether subnational (regional and local) democracy is derived from national democracy or whether it is legitimate in its own right. Besides these theoretical concerns it focuses on the practice of democracy: the roles of political parties and interest groups and also how subnational political institutions relate to the ordinary citizen. This can take the form of local referendums or other mechanisms of participation. The Handbook reveals a wide variety of practices across Europe in this regard. Local financial systems also reveal a great variety. Finally, each chapter examines the challenges facing subnational democracy but also the opportunities available to them to enhance their democratic systems. Among the challenges identified are: Europeanization, globalization, but also citizens disaffection and switch-off from politics. Some countries have confronted these challenges more successfully than others but all countries face them. An important aspect of the Handbook is the inclusion of all the countries of East and Central Europe plus Cyprus and Malta, who joined the EU in 2004 and 2007. This is the first time they have been examined alongside the countries of Western Europe from the angle of subnational democracy.

French Revolutionary Infantry 1789–1802 by Terry Crowdy Book Resume:

The years immediately following the French Revolution of 1789 saw an extraordinary transformation of the French army. From a distrusted instrument of the feudal power of the king and nobility, it became the symbol of liberty and citizenship. The transition was complex and painful, as the remnants of the old professional army were joined by a flood of civilian volunteers and conscripts, of whom even the best were short of everything except republican fervour. This book describes the stages of the rebirth that produced an army capable of beating off half the monarchies of Europe, thus laying the foundations for Napoleon's unique victories ten years later.

Revolutionary Dreams by Richard Stites Book Resume:

The revolutionary ideals of equality, communal living, proletarian morality, and technology worship, rooted in Russian utopianism, generated a range of social experiments which found expression, in the first decade of the Russian revolution, in festival, symbol, science fiction, city planning, and the arts. In this study, historian Richard Stites offers a vivid portrayal of revolutionary life and the cultural factors--myth, ritual, cult, and symbol--that sustained it, and describes the principal forms of utopian thinking and experimental impulse. Analyzing the inevitable clash between the authoritarian elements in the Bolshevik's vision and the libertarian behavior and aspirations of large segments of the population, Stites interprets the pathos of utopian fantasy as the key to the emotional force of the Bolshevik revolution which gave way in the early 1930s to bureaucratic state centralism and a theology of Stalinism.

Napoleon and Russia by Michael Adams Book Resume:

Napoleon and Russia tells, for the first time, the full story of Napoleon and his crucial relationship with Russia, from the 1790s and Bonaparte's rise to power, through the period of Austerlitz, Tilsit and the Russian invasion, to the Emperor's fall and its aftermath. In doing so, it not only puts the critical events of 1812 in their proper context as part of an even greater tale - of peace as well as war, friendship as well as enmity - but also provides fresh insight into the Napoleonic period as a whole, questioning many of the assumptions about the era prevalent in the English-speaking world. The tale boasts a cast of fascinating characters to rival any novel: the rulers, Napoleon himself, Catherine the Great, 'Mad' Tsar Paul and the enigmatic Alexander I; generals such as Ney, Murat, Davout, Suvorov, Kutuzov and Barclay de Tolly; statesmen like Talleyrand, Caulaincourt, Czartoryski and Rumiantsev; and, of course, the ordinary soldiers who fought some of the most intriguing, bloody and important campaigns in history. This is an enthralling story of fundamental importance in the history of Europe and, indeed, the world.
