This is a new edition of 'France in Revolution' and has been fully updated and extended to cover the 2008 AS and A2 specifications for all examination boards. This title charts the long- and short-term causes of the French Revolution, the political, social and economic impact of the Revolution itself and the establishment of the Terror.

Throughout the book key dates, terms and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined. Summary diagrams are included to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the period, and exam-style questions and tips written by examiners for each examination board provide the opportunity to develop exam skills.
