The Masses Arise, by Peter Taaffe, which was first published in 1989 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the start of the French revolution, is now back in print, writes Kevin Parslow.
In a new introduction, the author recounts the events of the revolution, bringing out the heroic role of the sans-culottes – who have been vilified by right-wing historians – and the relevance of these events to what is likely to develop in the coming period in France, Europe and throughout the world. “This book is more relevant today than when it was first published in 1989,” writes Peter Taaffe.
