HST 606 Age of the French Revolution(GLA)

4 hours; 4 credits. Beginning with a study of the debate over the coming of the Revolution in late 18th-century Europe, this course will go on to consider the various phases of the Revolution and to assess the effective changes within France and Europe that it brought about, the foreign wars, and the Napoleonic "synthesis." A reading knowledge of a European language, particularly French, will be helpful.
