Simon Schama, professor of history at Harvard University, discusses his recent work, Citizens: A Chronicle of the French Revolution. He discusses and contrasts the outcome of the French revolution with the American revolution, as well as with the recent events in China. He examines the French constitutions and compares the features of the five republics. Also, Schama discusses his own background as well as the reaction of his peers to his writing a narrative history of France, as opposed to an analytical history. close
