HIST 4260 The French Revolution and Napoleon (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Few periods in history have been debated, attacked, and glorified, as much as the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Empire. The period 1789-1815 both ended the “old regime” and signaled the dawn of the “modern” world. It ushered in an age of liberty and equality, built nations and empire, generated terror and total war. This course provides an introduction to these extraordinary years, looking at the social, political, and cultural upheavals that affected France, Europe, and the Caribbean in this age of “democratic revolution."
