New York, "Cambridge University Press", 2004, -404p.This book examines the politics of the French Revolutionary tradition during the Bourbon Restoration and the early JulyMonarchy. Robert Alexander argues that progressive political change was achieved by legal grassroots organization and persuasion – rather than the Revolutionary tradition of conspiracy and armed insurrection – and that, moreover, political struggle was not confined to the elite, as common material interests and values linked the electorate to the disenfranchised. Battle between the advocates of nationaland royalso vereignty constituted the principaldynamic of the period, and fostered significant developments in party formation previously unrecognized by historians. To substantiate his claims, the author analyses relations between the Liberal Opposition, ultraroyalists and the state, concluding that although Liberals triumphed in the 1830 Revolution, thereafter they contributed to the destabilization that produced an immobile Orleanist regime.Nevertheless, they had pioneered a model for change which could successfully adapt pursuit of reform to longing for civil order.Robert Alexander is Professor of History at the University of Victoria, Canada. He has previously published with Cambridge University Press Bonapartism and Revolutionary Tradition in France (1991), and has also published Napoleon (2001). He has also contributed to many journals, including The Historical Journal, French History and Modern and Contemporary France.
