Publisher: Cambridge University Press | ISBN: 052102126X | edition 2005 | PDF | 287 pages | 1,15 mb

The French Revolution sparked an ideological debate that brought Britain to the brink of its own revolution in the 1790s. As radicals turned to the writing of "Jacobin" fiction, the fear of rebellion prompted conservatives to write novels. This is the first book to examine the extent and variety of Anti-Jacobin fiction. As well as identifying an unprecedented number of these novels and considering what they contain, M.O. Grenby investigates why they were written, especially by women, and why they proved to be so popular.
Fair Shares for All: Jacobin Egalitarianism in Practice

Fair Shares for All: Jacobin Egalitarianism in Practice (Past and Present Publications) by Jean-Pierre Gross
English | Jan. 28, 1997 | ISBN: 0521563186, 0521526507 | 274 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

This revisionist study challenges those readings of the French Revolution that see it as inherently violent and intolerant, often in terms of the Terror alone, and explores the egalitarian policies pursued in the provinces. The mainstream Jacobin agenda held out the promise of "fair shares" and equal opportunities for all in a private ownership market economy.

Premier août 1589: le dernier Valois, Henri III, meurt poignardé au bas-ventre par le moine jacobin Jacques Clément. Mais un doute s’installe chez Olivier Hauteville: le visage de l’assassin, même défiguré par les coups des gardes du roi, ne ressemble guère à celui du Clément qu’il a connu.De plus, la jeune Gabrielle d’Estrée confirme que l’homme massacré n’est pas le jacobin rencontré la veille du régicide.

The Chicago Teachers Union strike was the most important domestic labor struggle so far this century—and perhaps for the last forty years—and the strongest challenge to the conservative agenda for restructuring education, which advocates for more charter schools and tying teacher salaries to standardized testing, among other changes.

Danton (1983)

Gérard Depardieu and Wojciech Pszoniak star in Andrzej Wajda’s powerful, intimate depiction of the ideological clash between the earthy, man-of-the-people Georges Danton and icy Jacobin extemist Maximilien Robespierre, both key figures of the French Revolution. By drawing parallels to Polish “solidarity,” a movement that was being quashed by the government as the film went into production, Wajda drags history into the present. Meticulous and fiery, Danton has been hailed as one of the greatest films ever made about the Terror.
