The Political History of France- audiobook



On the eve of the French Revolution, the government is crippled by financial mismanagement, ruled by a King "devoid of both ability and energy," and resented by a tax-oppressed peasantry and a rising middle class. 

The Revolution escapes the control of its instigators and France is plunged into the Terror and international war. Enter Napoleon, a man with "an enormous capacity for work," who can "get to the root of a matter and master technicalities with great swiftness," but whose "vulgar desire for recognition leads to his country's downfall. Napoleon's successors, including his nephew, Louis Napoleon plunge France in 1870 into the disastrous Franco-Prussian War, and the anti-semitic mass hysteria of the Dreyfus case polarizes French society for over a decade. 

The book ends in 1910 with France on the eve of WWI." - Summary by Pamela Nagami, M.D. Genre(s): War & Military, Political Science, Modern (19th C) Language: English Read by: Pamela Nagami
