abstract
"Remembering Early Modern Revolutions is the first study of memory in relation to the major revolutions of the early modern period. Beginning with the English revolutions of the Seventeenth Century (1642-1660 and 1688-1689), this book also explores the American, French, and Haitian revolutions. Examining both personal and collective remembrance, and exploring both private recollection and public commemoration, Remembering Early Modern Revolutions uncovers the rich and powerful memory of revolution in the Atlantic world and is ideal for students and teachers of memory in the early modern period"--
