Review quote

"In this grand synthesis, in which every sentence could be backed up by a footnote, Lefebvre displays his judgment, his superb grasp of the sources, and the fresh insights he wrestled from his materials. All these qualities make "The French Revolution" a masterpiece." -- Peter Gay "In this grand synthesis, in which every sentence could be backed up by a footnote, Lefebvre displays his judgment, his superb grasp of the sources, and the fresh insights he wrestled from his materials.
