The Revolution in Provincial France

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the impact of the French Revolution on the social and economic conditions in Aquitaine. For much of Aquitaine, the Revolution spelt the end of an era of prosperity and the onset of a long and painful decline. The impact of the Revolution started to be felt between 1879 and 1792 when Aquitaine lost a substantial part of its European trade and its exports were reduced because of poor harvests. In addition, between 1792 and 1795, foreign trade finally collapsed.
