About this book

A distinguished group of international scholars from the disciplines of history, philosophy, literature and art history offer a reconsideration of the ideas and the impact of the abbé Henri Grégoire, one of the most important figures of the French Revolution and a contributor to the campaigns for Jewish emancipation, rights for blacks, the reform of the Catholic Church and many other causes

Reviews

`Altogether this is an important and useful collection which underlines how unjustly neglected this fascinating figure has been until recently.'
William Doyle, University of Bristol in English Historical Review, 117:473 (2002)
`[...]the Abbé Grégoire and His World will become required reading for all those who seek to understand the Revolution, its protagonists, and our indebtedness to both.'
Frances Malino, Wellesley College in Journal of the History of Philosophy, 40:2 (2002)
