And, Speaking of the French...

Indianapolis-based Liberty Fund publishes Considerations on the Principal Events of the French Revolution by Germaine de Stael this month.

De Stael (1766-1817) was a novelist, critic, political thinker, sociologist of literature and autobiographer. She experienced first-hand much of the French Revolution. Her work is edited by Aurelian Craiutu, associate professor of political science at Indiana University Bloomington, who also provides an introduction.

Liberty Fund is a private educational foundation established in 1960 to encourage study of the ideal of a society of free and responsible individuals.
