Shadows of Revolution

Reflections on France, Past and Present

David A Bell

France has experimented with many different forms of government, becoming ‘the most intense political laboratory the world has ever known’. In these essays by renowned American historian and journalist David Bell, he reflects on the Revolution’s influence on 19th-century politics, the development of anti-Semitism and the Vichy regime. He concludes by exploring how the cultural patterns established in the Revolution continue to shape modern French identity, drawing parallels between them and the Arab Spring and the terrorist attacks of 2015.
