Product Overview

This Book Offers imaginative biographical essays. Chapters concerning the American Revolution depict the military achievements of George Washington, the feats of the heroine Molly Pitcher, and the brilliant diplomatic accomplishments of Benjamin Franklin. Essays covering revolutions in Latin America describe the leadership role of Toussant L'Ouverture during the Haitian Revolution; and sections covering Europe focus on the leadership of Brissot during the Decembrist Revolution, and the accomplishments and failures of the Irishman John Mitchell and those of the Hungarian Louis Kossuth during the 1848 Revolutions. Finally a suggestive essay about Alexis De Tocqueville imagines the motives behind his denouncement of the radical ideologies and violence of the 1848 French Revolution.
