9780745331942: Jean Paul Marat: Tribune of the French Revolution (Revolutionary Lives)

Jean-Paul Marat’s role in the French Revolution has long been a matter of controversy among historians. Often he has been portrayed as a violent, sociopathic demagogue. This biography challenges that interpretation and argues that without Marat’s contributions as an agitator, tactician, and strategist, the pivotal social transformation that the Revolution accomplished might well not have occurred.

Clifford D. Conner argues that what was unique about Marat - which set him apart from all other major figures of the Revolution, including Danton and Robespierre - was his total identification with the struggle of the propertyless classes for social equality.

This is an essential book for anyone interested in the history of the revolutionary period and the personalities that led it.

Review:

'Cliff Conner's gracefully written and wisely observed biography of Jean Paul Marat tells the truth about this much maligned doctor and hero of the French revolution.' -- Michael Ratner and Michael Steven Smith, human rights attorneys and authors of Who Killed Che? How the CIA Got Away With Murder. Michael Ratner is President Emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights. 'This biography, written in an accessible and lively style, presents an activist and journalist from the French Revolution, and rescues him from myths and slanders.' -- Ian Birchall, author of The Spectre of Babeuf (1997). 'Clears away the cobwebs and prejudices and then reveals why we should love and admire this egalitarian revolutionary.' -- Lynne Stewart, lawyer 'A gripping introduction to the life of Marat and his role in the French Revolution.' -- Richard Sheldon, Lecturer in Social and Economic History, University of Bristol 'A fresh, welcome look at one of the most complex and fascinating figures of the French Revolution.' -- Adam Hochschild, author of King Leopold's Ghost (1999) and Bury the Chains (2006)
