The Revolution in Provincial France

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the role of Aquitaine as the frontier province of France during the French Revolution. The frontier question had proved incapable of harmonious resolution and Aquitains were forced to accept an imprecise compromise which lasted until the frontier was finally established by the Treaties of Bayonne in 1866–8. However, there was little spontaneous respect for state power in the frontier region, though the region was not necessarily counter-revolutionary in spirit.
