The object of these few pages is not to recount once more the history of the Revolution: that can be followed
in any one of a hundred text-books. Their object is rather to lay, if that be possible, an explanation of it before
the English reader; so that he may understand both what it was and how it proceeded, and also why certain
problems hitherto unfamiliar to Englishmen have risen out of it.
First, therefore, it is necessary to set down, clearly without modern accretion, that political theory which was a
sort of religious creed, supplying the motive force of the whole business; of the...
There's a revolution going on. A revolution of people changing their lives into something that surpasses their imaginations. And these people are making the changes themselves, under their own control, and under their own conditions. They've started to live life on their own terms, not the terms that have been imposed on them for all their lives.
Although the number of people in danger of malnutrition worldwide has decreased significantly in the past 30 years, thanks in part to the Green Revolution of the 20th century, an estimated 800 million people still lack adequate access to food. The world is now on the cusp of a second potential agricultural revolution, the
Thirty-five years ago a collection of letters written during the period of the Revolution and later, by John
Adams and his wife, Abigail Adams, came into my hands. They interested me so much that I thought they
might possibly interest others also, especially the growing generations not familiar with the history of the
persons and events connected with the great struggle. The result was an experiment in publication, first, of a
selection from the letters of Mrs. Adams addressed to her husband; and, at a later moment, of a selection from

During the night of July 14-15, 1789, the Duc de la Rochefoucauld- Liancourt caused Louis XVI to be
aroused to inform him of the taking of the Bastille. "It is a revolt, then?" exclaimed the King. "Sire!" replied
the Duke; "it is a revolution!" The event was even more serious. Not only had power slipped from the hands
of the King, but also it had not fallen into those of the Assembly. It now lay on the...
The Correspondence between the old Congress and the American Agents, Commissioners, and Ministers in
foreign countries, was secret and confidential during the whole revolution. The letters, as they arrived, were

There are two ways in which the French Revolution may be considered. We may look at the great events
which astonished and horrified Europe and America: the storming of the Bastille, the march on Versailles, the
massacres of September, the Terror, and the restoration of order by Napoleon. The study of these events must always be both interesting and profitable, and we cannot wonder that historians, scenting the approaching
battle, have sometimes hurried over the comparatively peaceful country that separated them from it.

The awful, soul-searing tragedy of Europe's great war of 1914 came to most men unexpectedly. The real
progress of the world during the five years preceding the war had been remarkable. All thinkers saw that the
course of human civilization was being changed deeply, radically; but the changes were being accomplished
so successfully that men hoped that the old brutal ages of military destruction were at an end, and that we
were to progress henceforth by the peaceful methods of evolution rather than the hysterical excitements and
volcanic upheavals of revolution.
