I've read a number of books on both the French Revolution and, of course, the American Revolution. Both happened in the late 1700s and were intertwined with each other. Yet one gave us the Terror and Napoleon, while the other gave us an enduring constitutional system of self-government. But I never understood why that was the case. What were the factors that accounted for this big difference in results?This book answers that question, at least as well and as clearly as anything I've read. Dunn l [...]

Scholars have long understood the contrasts and comparisons between the American and French Revolutions of the 18th Century.

I found Susan's Dunn comparison of the American and French revolutions very interesting. My history class had to use the book to write a paper for class. I chose the topic of human rights. I found out quite a bit about what the Americans and French thought about human rights when creating their new governments. This book really opened my eyes to the differences of the revolutions and their leaders.

Excellent little book outlining the fundamental and important differences between the American and French Revolutions. Explains in a nutshell why the American system has endured for 200+ years while the French have been through multiple republics, a couple returns to monarchy, the Terror and everyone's favorite little dictator. Another reason to be proud that you are an American. Highly recommended.
