'Sperber’s synthesis of the revolutionary era is extremely useful for advanced students. The book’s wide coverage is framed in an overarching, modern interpretation: The old-regime society of orders was replaced by a new civil society based on property ownership.'
Professor Marion Gray, Western Michigan University
