Pressestimmen'Peter Jones [is] the most accomplished British historian of the French peasantry ... his sensitivity to the patterns and concerns of rural life has a human feel of authenticity ... Superb and innovative empirical research of this sort is a welcome counterpoint to the grander narratives which the French Revolution so understandably evokes.' Times Literary Supplement '... outstanding ... Those familiar with his work will not be surprised that the book is characterized by a deep familiarity with both national politics and the 'revolution in the village', expressed in succinct, lucid prose.'
