a b Williams, Michael. "Review of: "Landscape and Memory" by Simon Schama". Annals of the Association of American Geographers. 87 (3): 564–65. doi: 10.1111/1467-8306.t01-1-00067 (inactive 1 August 2023). JSTOR 2564086. {{ cite journal}}: CS1 maint: DOI inactive as of August 2023 ( link) A similar critique of the American Revolution could be made as well--and of the English, the Russian etc. As regards the USA one could point to Canada or Australia, comparing their peaceful transitions to independence to our bloody one--but then what of "Common Sense" or "The Declaration of Independence"? Schama goes on of course to discuss the Napoleonic Wars following the revolution, decrying them as well. Indeed, after the early wars of liberation so well outlined by R.R. Palmer in his Age of Democratic Revolution, Napoleon did institute sheer wars of imperialist aggression. Those certainly were what most moderns, excepting the recent Bush administration, would consider war crimes. Yet our own revolution was followed by genocides covering the continent. Further, the British abolished slavery decades before we did.The book does an excellent job explaining the descent of the popular government from high minded declamations of freedom, justice, and equality to the madness of the Terror. As time went by the acclaimed proposals of one faction became the traitorous infamies of the next. https://intranet.royalholloway.ac.uk/iquad/documents/pdf/principal/hononaryfellowsprog.pdf [ bare URL PDF] El relato comienza con Talleyrand visitando a un Voltaire muy anciano y cierra con el mismo personaje en una América que el autor nos presenta como el paraíso en contraposición a la barbarie francesa. A mi que me expliqué Schama porque hubo una revolución francesa si todo estaba tan bien, si el reformismo de Luis XVI era una sociedad dinámica que conducía hacia un cambio social. El autor pretende sostener esta tesis a partir del análisis de personajes individuales, todos relacionados con las élites francesas, ni una sola mención a la gente corriente. Uno acaba la lectura, he de reconocer que ensimismado por la magnífica prosa y el desfile de personalidades, y no puede evitar pararse a valorar estos vacíos. Ni una sola descripción sobre la estructura, eso sí, abundantes lavados de imagen de la "puta austriaca" y Luis Capeto, todo ello a base de sentimentalismos. Schama dice que no pretende hacer un ensayo, pero aprovecha continuamente para meter pullas a la magnífica obra de Soboul, calificándola literalmente de "pastiche marxista", en base a que según él justifica el asesinato de girondinos, y hasta ahí su crítica. Tambi��n señala que la revolución francesa era anticapitalista en función de que la mayoría de ejecutados en Lyon pertenecían a la gran burguesía comercial, ya claro, pero porque eran realistas y federalistas, digo yo. A este análisis moralista hay que responderle con la frase de madame Roland: "Il faut du sang pour cimenter la revolution". Simon Schama es un tory inglés incapaz de comprender a las multitudes y las dinámicas de las revoluciones. The standard narrative of the French Revolution is of the oppressed proletariat heroically rising up to throw off the intolerable burden of a cruel and indifferent monarchy. The reality, of course, was far more complicated, and Simon Schama’s Citizens raises the question of whether the revolution was necessary at all. i39039869 |b1030002343228 |dcms |g- |m |h6 |x0 |t0 |i1 |j18 |k030927 |n02-21-2019 01:59 |o- |aDC148 .S43 1989
