The French Revolution embodied the emergence of the modern political world in the eyes of subsequent generations. It offered a new understanding of class politics, secular ideology, and revolutionary transformation which inspired the world-wide Communist experiment of the twentieth century. Iain Hampsher-Monk examines the variety, influence, and profundity of major thinkers such as Burke, Wollstonecraft, Paine and Godwin, as well as the impact of other less celebrated writers in this authoritative anthology of key political texts exploring the impact of this period on the British experience.
