Liberty or Death: The French Revolution – Peter McPhee

This is a book that wants to be more than just a chronology of the French Revolution, but struggles to paint a picture larger than the political machinations that went into the founding of the Republic and the turmoil that followed. For the most part it is easily readable, though at times it is hard to keep up with all the characters and plotting that want into this complicated event. That said, it is a solid text to be used as an introduction for upper level undergrads or graduate students. Not revolutionary in and of itself, it still does a respectable job of describing and analyzing the French Revolution.
