George Rudé’s The Crowd in the French Revolution: The First 60 Years

It is sixty years since George Rudé’s The Crowd in the French Revolution was first published, and forty years since the George Rudé Society held its first conference in Australia. To mark both of these anniversaries, we have put together this special forum on Rudé’s ground-breaking work. The following essays, by Dominique Godineau, Colin Jones, Peter McPhee, and Don Sutherland, each evaluate the impact and legacy of The Crowd.
