The Revolution in Provincial France

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the impact of the start of the French Revolution on the situation in Aquitaine. During this period, exaggerated expectations had been aroused in the region where political consciousness had been alerted by the intense propaganda of the preceding months. The deputies were key figures in these early months of the Revolution when communication was slow and uncertain. They were the ones who informed the people about the development and progress of the revolution.
