Review quote

'Studied at A-Level, this textbook gives a strongly detailed analysis of the poltical intrigue, incidents and events that stirred the passions of the Revolutionary Mob towards the years of the Directory. Sensibly organised to concentrate attention on periods of transition, this book is useful in providing overall summaries in different formats and tailor-made guides to notemakeing on the chapter in question, along with provision of sample questions and responses. Definately recommended.' Amazon reviewer
