A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
And not just for poli sci students. Reed, a college professor, makes his case with sharp, economcial writing and a well-organized progression. Given the perennial train wreck of the government in Haiti, the socialistic democracies in Spain and France, and U.S. hand-wringing over how our revolutionary fathers would view today's poiltical system, this an eye-opening journey that the author delivers with the finely honed chops of a historian who knows how to bring the past to life. Revolutions are nation's chances to reboot their destinies and Reed understands this better than your average prof.

I picked up this book mainly to read about the French revolution, of which I know too little, and to see how the author compares the French revolution to the American revolution. I did not expect to be interested in the analysis of Haiti's revolution. But what I will remember most from the book is the story of L'ouverture Toussaint, the brilliant freed Haitian slave who was light-years ahead of all the wise men of France who opposed him. I also learned about the secondary effects of the French revolution upon the political thought of the new American republic. The book provides a historical sweep of four revolutions with an integrated analysis of what worked or did not work and why. Not one boring page!
