A History of Modern France, Volume 1: Old Regime and Revolution, 1715-1799 Reviews
I'm glad to have read this because Cobban was quite influential in his time (the third edition was published in 1963), but historiography has definitely moved on. Still, there were some interesting points... and some interesting attitudes.He's largely dismissive of women: Mme de Stael was "less decorative" than some counterparts but had a good mind. He despises the san culottes and attributes to them almost no real political understanding or desire.He really, really doesn't like Bonaparte. On the second page, he talks of the "jumped-up lieutenant from a wild island" who led the armies of France after the revolution.
Very formal and old-fashioned history of France covering the death of Louis XIV to the Revolution. Quite a sweeping overview, and does well to make sense of what were undoubtedly chaotic times of intrigue and danger, but for me, it could have been more focussed on individual moments and momentous individuals, which would have made it more engaging for me as a (fairly) casual reader. Still looking forward to volume two and the rise of Napoleon.
