The fall of Robespierre in July 1794 marks not only a turning point in the history of the Revolution: Thermidor is also a symbolic moment which came to haunt the subsequent revolutions of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Professor Baczko analyses the Terror in detail through the political history of the French National Assembly, and also looks at the broader issues of the political culture of Revolutionary France.
