9780141017273: Citizens: A Chronicle of The French Revolution
Críticas:

"Dazzling...stimulating...This is no ordinary book...Schama does not merely write brilliantly about people, about events, about the abuse of rhetoric, and about festivals and executions. He also chronicle with a dramatic burst of poetic imagination.... The virtues of this book Ýlie in the coruscating brilliance of dazzling display of erudition and intelligence ... His chronicle is, after all, a stunningly virtuoso performance." -- Lawrence Stone, "The New Republic"
"One of The Best Books Of The Decade." -- "Time"
"Monumental...a delight to read...Lively descriptions of major events, colorful cameos of leading characters (and obscure ones too), bring them to life here as no other general work has done....Above all, Mr. Schama tells a story, and he tells it well." -- "The New York Times Book Review"
"Citizens, like the great 19th-century narratives it emulates, makes entertainment and erudition work hand in hand....As no other recent historian of the revolution, Schama brings to life the excitement -- and harrowing terror -- of an epochal human event." -- "Newsweek"
"A fresh and elegant narrative...A brilliantly readable and beautifully illustrated account." -- "Washington Post Book World"
"We are in the hands of a master storyteller...Vivid, dramatic, thought-provoking...Schama's portrait of the revolution is often surprising...His splendid recounting convinces us that much of what we thought we knew is wrong." -- "Time"

"From the Trade Paperback edition."

Reseña del editor:

One of the great landmarks of modern history publishing, Simon Schama's Citizens: A Chronicle of the French Revolution is the most authoritative social, cultural and narrative history of the French Revolution ever produced.

'Monumental ... provocative and stylish, Simon Schama's account of the first few years of the great Revolution in France, and of the decades that led up to it, is thoughtful, informed and profoundly revisionist'
  Eugen Weber, The New York Times Book Review

'The most marvellous book I have read about the French Revolution'
  Richard Cobb, The Times

'Dazzling - beyond praise - He has chronicled the vicissitudes of that world with matchless understanding, wisdom, pity and truth, in the pages of this marvellous book'
  Bernard Levin, Sunday Times

'Provides an unrivalled impression of the currents and contradictions which made up this terrible sequence of events'
  Antony Beevor, Express

Simon Schama is University Professor in Art History and History at Columbia University in New York, and one of the best-known scholars in Britain in any field.

He is also the writer-presenter of historical and art-historical documentaries for BBC Television. He lives outside New York City with his wife and children.
