Cultural and Political Strife: Urban Life and the French Revolution

ID : 80185   
« back to classes page
Paris led the way in experiencing the effects of Revolution, but all of the cities of Europe were impacted. London and Amsterdam offered mixed responses, with their regimes expressing horror at revolution, while many among their citizens reacted with delight.  Similar divisions emerged in most other cities, but Venice and Rome provided splendid examples of reactionary behavior clashing with a desire for creating a new political environment with constitutions and political organizations. The emergence of Napoleon demonstrated the weakness of the Revolution in France, but his activities helped to spread many of its benefits throughout continental Europe, particularly in the major cities.
