Citizens A Chronicle of the French Revolution By Schama, Simon

Publisher's Synopsis

From the author of "The Embarrassment of Riches", this is a history of the French Revolution. At the heart of this account is the story of the transformation of "subjects" to "citizens". The author aims to show a France infatuated with novelty and technology in the midst of dramatic economic change. The darkening of the original euphoric vision of liberty into a scenario of hunger, anger, terror and death is the author's theme, as he draws on available material of social and cultural history.;"Citizens" was winner of the 1990 NCR Book Award for Non-Fiction, which is considered to be the most lucrative literary prize given in this country.
