Over the last fifty years few historians have made such an outstanding contribution to the study of eighteenth-century Europe as Norman Hampson. He has written many books and numerous articles dealing with the Enlightenment and Revolutionary France, while teaching at the Universities of Manchester, Newcastle and York. Through his writing and teaching, not to mention his role in the Society for the Study of French History for which he was the founding President, he has exerted a profound influence over a generation of scholars. It is to celebrate these lasting achievements that 'Enlightenment and Revolution' has been assembled. Taking a broad cultural and intellectual approach, this collection of essays contains contributions by fellow scholars of eighteenth-century Europe, who write on topics relating to the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, and who have known him as colleague, supervisor or friend.
