Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Archibald Alison (1792-1867) was a Scottish historian with a particular interest in the French Revolution. He wrote from a deeply conservative standpoint and was a fierce opponent of the 1832 Reform Act. Although mocked by Disraeli in Coningsby as Mr Wordy , he wrote works which became bestsellers in the nineteenth century. This ten-volume History of Europe during the French Revolution, published between 1833 and 1842, regarded the French Revolution as the origin of all that was wrong with modern Europe. Alison feared that while Britain had escaped revolution in 1789, democratic reform could still lead to anarchy, as in the French July Revolution of 1830. Although criticised by Acton and J. S. Mill for his methodology, Alison has more recently been studied by scholars for insights into nineteenth-century historiography. Volume 7 covers British India under the Wellesleys, and the campaigns in Germany and the Peninsula to 1810. N° de réf. du libraire AAA9781108025430

Description du livre: Archibald Alison (1792?1867) was a deeply conservative Scottish historian who viewed political reform and democracy with suspicion. His History of Europe during the French Revolution was published after the Reform Act of 1832, and regarded the democratic ideals of the early revolutionaries as leading to Europe-wide anarchy.
