Review: Citizens: A Chronicle of the French Revolution

User Review  - Tom - Goodreads

Extremely long -- and not in a bad way. Schama aims to cover every single detail of the revolution and he does so in a way that's both vivid and riveting. You can't imagine a better chronicle. Read full review

User Review  - Adam Laughton - Goodreads

User Review  - Linden Salter - Goodreads

If you read only one book about the French Revolution, make it this one. Schama manages to analyse the Big Picture (major historical and economic affairs) while always keeping in sight the fact that history is about people, and combines it into a gripping narrative. Read full review
