The Paris Commune: A Revolution in Democracy [2006]

£12.99

Product description

Published in 2006 by Bookmarks Publications. Includes numerous black and white photographs, with captions; an extensive set of notes, detailed appendices such as a chronology of events, an extensive list of principal figures, lyrics to L'Internationale, and a map of Paris, together with a helpful index.

In 1871, in Paris, a revolutionary experiment took place. For 72 days, the city's poor took control of Europe's greatest capital. Donny Gluckstein outlines the Commune's history, looking at its achievements, the many dilemmas it faced and its tragic end. Drawing on the experience of the Commune, he seeks to illuminate contemporary debates about democracy, the state and revolution.

In very good, almost as new condition. The page edges are slightly marked in places, however this is not visible on the pages themselves. Some slight shelf wear has made the corners of the front and back corners slightly creased. Otherwise in perfect condition, pages are clean and the binding is tight.
