by Jean Jaurès, translated by Mitchell Abidor, foreword by Henry Heller


Jean Jaurès was the celebrated French Socialist Party leader, assassinated
at the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Published just a few years
before his death, his magisterial *A Socialist History of the French
Revolution*, has endured for over a century as one of the most influential
accounts of the French Revolution ever to be published.

Mitchell Abidor’s long-overdue translation and abridgement of Jaurès’s
original 6-volumes brings this exceptional work to an Anglophone audience
for the first time.

Written in the midst of his activities as leader of the Socialist Party and
editor of its newspaper, *L’Humanité*, Jaurès intended the book to serve as
both a guide and an inspiration to political activity; even now it can
serve to do just that. Abidor’s accomplished translation, and Jaurès’s
verve, originality and willingness to criticise all players in this great
drama make this a truly moving addition to the shelf of great books on the
French Revolution.
