Pressestimmen"This is a significant project and the archival research that has gone into it is impressive. Howe offers a striking new interpretation of French foreign policy during this period, arguing that the 'Belgian Plan' of Charles Dumouriez and Pierre LeBrun was embraced by the Girondin political leadership and played an important role in the domestic political wrangles of 1792-93."--Paul Hanson, Butler University "This is a rich book, full of fresh and original research, that makes a compelling case for the centrality of foreign policy to understanding the era of the French Revolution."--Marc Lerner, The University of Mississippi
