The Legacy of 1789: Part 2.
Kirkaldy, James
New England Journal of History, v47 n2 p45-55 Fall 1990
Honoring the French Revolution's bicentennial, examines its legacy for modern France. Contends that 1789's imprint appears in France's centralized bureaucracy, strong political divisions (conservative-liberal-socialist), church-state separation, and tendency for government to argue ends justify means. Maintains the Revolution also spawned nationalism, militarism, and a steadfast belief in human rights. (CH)
