Summary
As the 1790s began, a fragile America teetered on the brink of oblivion, Russia towered as a vast imperial power, and France plunged into revolution. But in contrast to the way conventional histories tell it, none of these remarkable events occurred in isolation. Acclaimed historian Jay Winik masterfully illuminates how their fates combined in one extraordinary moment to change the course of civilization
Summary
Documents the final years of the eighteenth century as a period of tumultuous change marked by Russia's imperial power, the revolution in France, and America's near-collapse, events that the author reveals to be intricately related
