Sample text

By an “associationist” view I would not mean such an attempt as Crane Brinton’s in his Anatomy of Revolution, in which the author looks for a pattern of revolutionary process as such, by comparative study of the English, American, French, Russian, and other revolutions. I would mean rather a view in which the French Revolution is seen as a kind of origin, partial cause, or distant prefigurement of the Russian Revolution, which insists upon “Jacobinism” as the “communism” of the eighteenth century, or sees a kind of continuing linear process in which the Russian Revolution is in some way a consequence of the French, or presents a more highly developed stage of the same process.

The Age of the Democratic Revolution 13 the Americans. Like all peoples, they had been exposed to influences from outside. But the French Revolution grew directly out of earlier French history.

There remained in France, under the Directory, amorphous democratic groups which looked back with favor on the Constitution of the Year I (1793) and the Committee of Public Safety.

They even won a national election in 1798, to no avail, since they were put down by a coup d’état.
