In The Press

"Not only the best source-book [on the topic] available in English, but also an excellent model of research and interpretation. Geggus's concise account of the Revolution is clear, efficient, and remarkably free of the usual mythologies, hagiographies, and demonizations, while his excellently selected documents outline the story very well on their own. . . . ideal for students who want to learn how the craft of recording history is practiced." --Madison Smartt Bell, Goucher College
