Post works about the Revolution
Hi everyone! Maybe someone else has already asked this...I'd like to know something more about the revolution and I guess there's plenty of works on the subject. So could anyone suggest a good starting point (in Italian or English)?
Thank you very much! :D

Yes, his "Citizens" is an excellent and balanced work.

I'm reading it now, and I must say that it's a very good book, at least until now. I've read the first 200 pages (out or 700, more or less) and it's very enjoyable, not too technical, yet it gives a lot of interesting information about French society and the contradiction of the Revolution.
