Sister Revolutions: French Lightning, American Light

List price: $14.00

Available: 9

The French and American Revolutions presented the world with two very different visions of democracy. Although both professed similar Enlightenment ideals of freedom, equality, and justice and set similar political agendas, there were also fundamental differences. The French sought a complete break with a thousand years of history; the Americans were content to preserve many aspects of their English heritage. Why did the two revolutions follow such different trajectories? And what lessons do they offer us about democracy today? In lucid narrative style, Susan Dunn captures the personalities and lives of the great figures of both revolutions and shows how their stories added up to make two very different events.
