Why did the French Revolution, informed by the principles of liberty, equality and fraternity, end in the Terror? This thought-provoking study explores the way in which fundamental political transitions generate both promise and anxiety, and how France's failed evolution into a modern state introduced a new scourge: the ideological terror that Hitler, Stalin and a host of other dictators would unleash on an even greater scale. This sobering analysis reminds us of the dangers we must still guard against today.
