The French Revolution had a profound influence on perceptions of the past as well as setting the agenda for modern political culture. This book examines the ways in which the past was rediscovered, retrieved and represented in post-revolutionary France, concentrating upon the Restoration and the July Monarchy, the period which witnessed the promotion of history as a grand discourse of legitimation.


` … important and illuminating book …' - Douglas Johnson, Times Literary Supplement

`French Historians and Romanticism is a subtle and revealing study of ideas about History shared and contested by leading liberal historians. … There are major strengths in Crossley's book which make it a required text for University and State libraries and a valuable source for readers interested in French historiography, Romanticism and liberalism.' - John Hooper, Journal of European Studies
