    Inhaltsangabe

    The 25 years between the onset of the French Revolution in 1789 and the Bourbon Restoration after Napoleon in 1814 is an astonishing period in world history. This era shook the foundations of the old world and marked a permanent shift for politics, religion, and society - not just for France, but for all of Europe. An account of the events alone reads like something out of a thrilling novel:

    • France’s oppressed and hungry masses rise up against their government.
    • In Paris, crowds storm the Bastille looking for bread and weaponry.
    • Rumors, panic, and fear grip the nation as it faces an uncertain future.
    • The National Assembly adopts the Declaration of the Rights of Man, the first bold step toward the invention of democratic politics and a republican state.
    • A young Corsican named Napoleon Bonaparte stuns Europe with his military strategy and political boldness.

    Living the French Revolution and the Age of Napoleon is your opportunity to learn the full story of this captivating period. Taught by Dr. Suzanne M. Desan, these 48 exciting lectures give you a broad and comprehensive survey of one of the most important eras in modern history.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Excellent and captivating lectures!

    i have learned so much from this course! This series of lectures describes the main historical events in all their complexity, but the excellent structure makes the story easy to follow. And it also presents all the offshoots, like the American revolution, slavery and the rise of conservatism in Europe. highly recommended.

    An excellent and exhaustive description .....

    ... of the French revolution of 1789 and a quite satisfying history of the Napoleonic era. The course starts with five indroductionary chapters about the "ancien regime" and then the first 2/3 are about the French revolution proper, including some often neglected aspects like women´s rights, colonial aspects, internal problems, etc. The last third about Napoleon comprises 2/3 of the total time span covered in the course, so fans the Corse might be a bit disappointed.
    A big problem for me was the presentation of the course. Prof. Desan sound like she is breathlessly shouting to an unruly class. And again and again she suddenly stops without apparent reason, mostly between sentences, sometimes in the middle of a sentence. As much as I admired her command of the topic, to follow the course was not an undivided pleasure.
