9780719064319   Product Code: 98355
This collection of nine essays invites scholars and students alike to reconsider the transformation of France in the years 1794 to 1814. This period is often described in terms of social chaos, ineffectual government and democratic disappointment. Rather than simply trying to efface this image, the contributors explore the ambiguities and continuities that characterized the aftermath of the French Revolution and the ascendance of Napoleon.
