'This new edition of Mason and Rizzo's anthology is a welcome addition to the study of the revolutionary and Napoleonic French Atlantic. It includes a wealth of documents related to life in metropolitan and colonial France from the middle of the eighteenth century through the Napoleonic Consulate as well as concise section overviews that detail experiences on the continent and in Saint-Domingue, France's wealthiest Caribbean colony, during this tumultuous era. These features, along with images, maps, and a detailed timeline, provide an invaluable resource for scholars and students alike.' - Rebecca Hartkopf Schloss, Texas A&M University 'A wonderful resource for students and teachers of the French Revolution. The selection of the documents is judicious and reflects the most recent scholarship. I especially appreciate two aspects of this updated edition: the weaving of documents from the slave revolt in the Caribbean into the chronological arc of the Revolution, and the attention given to the Thermidorian Reaction and the Directory, two significant moments that often receive short shrift in the literature. Mason and Rizzo have done a valuable service to the profession. This collection should become the standard title in courses on the French Revolution.' - Ronen Steinberg, Michigan State University
