Andress, David:
The Terror - The Merciless War for Freedom in Revolutionary France - 9780374530730 - Taschenbuch

2006, ISBN: 9780374530730

[ED: Paperback / Taschenbuch], [PU: Farrar Straus & Giroux], Looks at the history of the French Reign of Terror, arguing that the violence of the period resulted from dogmatic and fundamentalist thinking by groups of people who felt that they were still fighting for freedom. For two hundred years, the Terror has haunted the imagination of the West. The descent of the French Revolution from rapturous liberation into an orgy of apparently pointless bloodletting has been the focus of countless reflections on the often malignant nature of humanity and the folly of revolution.   David Andress, a leading historian of the French Revolution, presents a radically different account of the Terror. In a remarkably vivid and page-turning work of history, he transports the reader from the pitched battles on the streets of Paris to the royal family's escape through secret passageways in the Tuileries palace, and across the landscape of the tragic last years of the Revolution. The violence, he shows, was a result of dogmatic and fundamentalist thinking: dreadful decisions were made by groups of people who believed they were still fighting for freedom but whose survival was threatened by famine, external war, and counter-revolutionaries within the fledging new state. Urgent questions emerge from Andress's trenchant reassessment: When is it right to arbitrarily detain those suspected of subversion? When does an earnest patriotism become the rationale for slaughter? Combining startling narrative power and bold insight, The Terror is written with verve and exceptional pace-it is a superb popular debut from an enormously talented historian., DE, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, Paperback / Taschenbuch, 441, [GW: 435g], offene Rechnung (Vorkasse vorbehalten), sofortueberweisung.de, Selbstabholung und Barzahlung, PayPal, Lastschrift, Banküberweisung, Interntationaler Versand

The Terror: The Merciless War for Freedom in Revolutionary France - Taschenbuch

2006, ISBN: 0374530734

[SR: 2389517], Paperback, [EAN: 9780374530730], Farrar Straus Giroux, Farrar Straus Giroux, Book, [PU: Farrar Straus Giroux], 2006-12-26, Farrar Straus Giroux, The French Revolution marks the foundation of the modern political world. It was in the crucible of the Revolution that the political forces of conservatism, liberalism and socialism began to find their modern form, and it was the Revolution that first asserted the claims of universal individual rights, on which our current understandings of citizenship are based. But the Terror was, as much as anything else, a civil war, and such wars are always both brutal and complex. The guillotine in Paris claimed some 1,500 official victims, but executions of captured counter-revolutionary rebels ran into the tens of thousands, and deaths in the areas of greatest conflict probably ran into six figures, with indiscriminate massacres being perpetrated by both sides. The story of the Terror is a story of grand political pronouncements, uprisings and insurrections, but also a story of survival against hunger, persecution and bewildering ideological demands, a story of how a state, even with the noblest of intentions, can turn on its people and almost crush them., 882476, France, 271480, Europe, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275899, Revolutions & Coups, 771718, World History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
