The Great French Revolution is Peter Kropotkin's classic account of the history of the upheavels from 1789 to 1793. Although Kropotkin is best known as the chief theorist for the political theory of anarchism, he was also a highly educated man (a member of the Russian nobility), a skilled historian, and a compelling and powerful writer. This sweeping account is written not from the point of view of great leaders, politicians or speechmakers, but from the great mass of ordinary French people, who began the Revolution on their own and who, at every crucial stage, took to the streets on their own initiative to carry the Revolution forward, to end autocracy and introduce democracy.
