Gateway to the French Revolution

Gateway to the French Revolution

Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution, Friedrich von Gentz's Revolutions Compared, and Joseph de Maistre's On God and Society

by Edmund Burke

Gateway to the French Revolution features voices critical of the French Revolution and its aftershocks. Edmund Burke’s critique of the Revolution is widely known and set into motion the development of political Conservatism. Also decrying the excesses of the Terror is Friedrich Gentz, a lesser-known Austrian diplomat who would become an architect of European peace after Napoleon’s failed ambitions, and Joseph de Maistre, a Savoiard nobleman whose own reflections would form a current of counter-revolutionary reactionary that has continues to have implications in our contemporary world.
