The French Revolution and British Popular Politics

Mark Philp
Cambridge University Press, 12 Φεβ 2004 - 252 σελίδες
The nine essays in this collection focus on the dynamics of British popular politics in the 1790s and on the impact of the French Revolution and the subsequent war with France. Leading scholars in the field explore the nature and origins of the ideological conflicts between reformers and loyalists, the impact of the war with France on the organisation of the British state and on its relations with its people, and the extent of the threat of revolution on both British and colonial territory. The French Revolution and British Popular Politics makes an unusually integrated and coherent collection of essays, substantially advancing knowledge in this controversial area and bringing together important work by senior figures in the field.

Σελίδα 2 - I have lived to it ; I could almost say, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen thy salvation. I have lived to see a diffusion of knowledge, which has undermined superstition and error. I have lived to see the rights of men better understood than ever; and nations panting for liberty which seemed to have lost the idea of it. I have lived to see thirty millions of people, indignant and resolute, spurning at slavery, and demanding liberty with an irresistible voice....
Σελίδα 2 - Tremble, all ye oppressors of the world! Take warning all ye supporters of slavish governments, and slavish hierarchies!
Σελίδα 2 - After sharing in the benefits of one Revolution, I have been spared to be a witness to two other Revolutions, both glorious.
