In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

FrRevol_001-050.indd 5 3/16/12 1:01 PM Advertisement ofthe Author I began this work with an intention of confining it to an examination of the political actions and writings of my father. But, as I advanced in my labor, I was led by the subject itself to trace, on one hand, the principal events of the French Revolution and to present, on the other, a picture of England, as a justification of the opinion ofM. Necker relative to the political institutions of that country. My plan being therefore enlarged, I judged it proper to alter the title, although I had not changed the object. Nevertheless, there will remain in this work more details relative to my father, and even to myself, than I should have inserted ifI had originally conceived it in a general point of view; but, perhaps, circumstances of a private nature are conducive to a clearer knowledge ofthe spirit and character of the times we are about to describe.
