Blum's elegant translatioins of texts hertofore difficult or impossible to find in English allow Anglophone readers to profit from the counter-revolutionaires' insights about social and cultural matters of perennial importance, such as the necessary roles of religion, family, and local communitites within any larger political society--matters of pressing concern to the counter-revolutionaries of our own time.

Reviews - What do customers think about Critics of the Enlightenment: Readings in the French Counter-Revolutionary Tradition?

A Solid Survey  Oct 28, 2005
Prof. Blum's thick volume is a good addition to the library of any scholar of the enlightenment period.

The book introduces English speaking readers to six French Catholic writers, providing a well written introduction to the writers and then a selection of each author's writings.

These are the lost voices of the French Revolution, counter-revolutionary thinkers who focused their attention on the permanent things while providing elegant arguments for their principles. Theses voices were largely ignored by their contemporaries, let us not make the same mistake by looking over this engaging translation.

The writing is academic, but not unapproachable, and I would recommend this especially to college / graduate students looking for a supplement to their French History classes--most professors will gloss over these thinkers, if they are mentioned at all.

So pick it up if French History your thing, as it is an invaluable reference.
