"A brilliant and fascinating book. De Baecque's historical method is original and provocative. His insights into the French Revolution are startling and fresh. And when it comes to the ghoulish recesses of the revolutionary imagination, he is one of the best guides since that contemporary expert in the macabre subject, the Marquis de Sade." -- The New Republic
"Rewarding strong-stomached readers with a riveting tale, Glory and Terror limns the era at a visceral level." -- The Chronicle of Higher Education
