Lectures on the French Revolution

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: I. THE HERALDS OF THE REVOLUTION. The revenue of France was near twenty millions when Lewis XVI, finding it inadequate, called upon the nation for supply. In a single lifetime it rose to far more than one hundred millions, while the national income grew still more rapidly; and this increase was wrought by a class to whom the ancient monarchy denied its best rewards, and whom it deprived of power in the country they enriched. As their industry effected change in ...

The French Revolution, Volume 3

By: Hippolyte A. Taine

Preface: ?In Egypt,? says Clement of Alexandria,[1] ?the sanctuaries of the temples are shaded by curtains of golden tissue. But on going further into the interior in quest of the statue, a priest of grave aspect, advancing to meet you and chanting a hymn in the Egyptian tongue, slightly raises a veil to show you the god. And what do you behold? A crocodile, or some indigenous serpent, or other dangerous animal, the Egyptian god being a beast sprawling on a purple carpet.?

The Aborigines of Western Australia

By: Albert F. Calvert

Preface: ANY attempt to fathom the depth of mystery which surrounds the history of the Australian Aboriginal must necessarily be in the main a failure. The subject is surrounded with difficulty. Captain Dampier was the first Englishman known to have made the acquaintance of the Australian natives, whom he calls ?the poor winking people of New Holland, the miserablest people on earth,? and so forth. During the intervening two centuries we have not added much to our knowle...

Democracy in America, Volume 2

By: Alexis De Toqueville

Excerpt: The Americans live in a democratic state of society, which has naturally suggested to them certain laws and a certain political character. This same state of society has, moreover, engendered amongst them a multitude of feelings and opinions which were unknown amongst the elder aristocratic communities of Europe: it has destroyed or modified all the relations which before existed, and established others of a novel kind. The aspect of civil society has been no le...

The French Revolution, Volume 2

By: Hippolyte A. Taine

Preface: In this volume, as in those preceding it and in those to come, there will be found only the history of Public Authorities. Others will write that of diplomacy, of war, of the finances, of the Church; my subject is a limited one. To my great regret, however, this new part fills an entire volume; and the last part, on the revolutionary government, will be as long.

The French Revolution, Volume 1

By: Hippolyte A. Taine

Preface: This second part of ?Les Origines de la France Contemporaine? will consist of two volumes. Ppopular insurrections and the laws of the Constituent Assembly end in destroying all government in France; this forms the subject of the present volume. A party arises around an extreme doctrine, grabs control of the government, and rules in conformity with its doctrine. This will form the subject of the second volume.

Ten Days That Shook the World

By: John Reed

Preface: This book is a slice of intensified history?history as I saw it. It does not pretend to be anything but a detailed account of the November Revolution, when the Bolsheviki, at the head of the workers and soldiers, seized the state power of Russia and placed it in the hands of the Soviets. Naturally most of it deals with ?Red Petrograd,? the capital and heart of the insurrection. But the reader must realize that what took place in Petrograd was almost exactly dupl...
