Reflections of Revolution, first published in 1993, demonstrates the interdisciplinarity that had been emerging from cultural and historical studies. Taking the French Revolution as its focus, the book examines the tremendously diverse and intellectually exciting cultural reactions to the events of 1789. This title will be of interest to students of both history and literature.
