AANTEKENINGEN bij Lynn Hurst, The French Revolution and Human Rights. A Brief History with Documents

In het begin van mijn onderzoek was dit boek heel nuttig, omdat er veel belangrijke stukken in stonden.`Maar later had ik de originelen van die stukken en dat bleek toch beter te werken. Daarom geef ik hieronder alleen de inhoud van het boek weer, vooral voor mensen die zulke teksten liever in het Engels lezen.

Wanneer dit boek is uitgekomen, weet ik niet meer. Er schijnt een tweede druk te zijn verschenen in 2016, maar die heb ik niet gezien, dus het onderstaande is gebaseerd op de eerste druk.
