あらすじ・解説

The principles of the French Revolution remain the only possible basis for a just society - even if, after more than 200 years, they are more contested than ever before. In A New World Begins, Jeremy D. Popkin offers a riveting account of the revolution that puts the listener in the thick of the debates and the violence that led to the overthrow of the monarchy and the establishment of a new society. 

We meet Mirabeau, Robespierre, and Danton, in all of their brilliance and vengefulness; we witness the failed escape and execution of Louis XVI; we see women demanding equal rights and Black slaves wresting freedom from revolutionaries who hesitated to act on their own principles; and we follow the rise of Napoleon out of the ashes of the Reign of Terror.

Based on decades of scholarship, A New World Begins will stand as the definitive treatment of the French Revolution.

A great and engaging story

I’ve been looking for a comprehensive introduction to the French Revolution and this book finally meets my needs.

It is well written and easy to follow. As someone who listens to a lot of books on history, I especially appreciate that the author frequently gives dates (it’s a little thing, but goes a long way).

The author is not without his biases (excusing Robespierre and his colleagues, while being critical of Napoleon), but it doesn’t detract from this sweeping story.

Great suff

This is not a subject I"am yes very familiar with. Well thought out and researched with thoroughly enjoyable narration. I suggest this for someone with a little background knowledge . There are many books already available regarding the French Revolution. In my opinion this volume has earned its place among the others the than add to clutter!

excellent as far as I (a non historian) can tell

I enjoyed it, the content was well spoken although I cannot tell you how good the pronunciation was.

covers lots of subjects endemic to modern life: economic exploitation, privilege, fake news.
also surprising appearances of other subjects like music, dictionaries and theatre
