Thomas Carlyle's history of the French Revolution captured the Victorian imagination with vivid pictures of a society in conflict. A rich, brilliant, and arresting book, it defined a crucial epoch in modern European history for generations of British readers.

Only in the past few decades has this difficult yet rewarding text moved back to the central position it deserves.
