Conspiracy in the French Revolution

Peter R. Campbell, Thomas E. Kaiser, and Marisa Linton

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first book on conspiracy in the French Revolution
  • There is no equivalent for students wanting to come to grips with this important subject A really coherent book of highly readable and accessible chapters, designed to give both an overview of conspiracies and fears of conspiracies in the Revolution, and a sense of new research worn lightly, by recognised experts in this field Conspiracy and terrorism are central concerns in the modern world
  • But these terms were central, too, to the French Revolution
  • Indeed, it was in the melting pot of revolutionary politics that these ideas first came to the forefront of political thinking in a way that was recognisably modern
  • This book looks at the genesis of the fears that still haunt contemporary politics The volume contains a great deal of original research, published for the first time in this book
