Excerpt from Brougham's WorksTo the work as now published there are several considerable additions made, which seemed necessary for the further illustration of the Revolutionary History, and also for the exposition of the practical conclusions to be drawn from it as warnings and as guides, both to the people and their leaders in other countries.The commentaries on the conduct of the Thermidoreans and of the Girondins appeared to be required by a strict regard to historical truth, as well as to political principle, how painful soever it might be, to treat some of the most worthless of men and some of the most virtuous, as having worked nearly equal mischief to their country and to the world. The Girondins afford the most remarkable instance in the annals of faction of the evil consequences which may result from party spirit and political enthusiasm acting in combination, out without the light of enlarged views, the control of calm reflection, and the force of fixed resolution.The noble conduct of the French Bar during the reign of terror had not been in the former publication sufficiently commemorated. Of course reference is here only made to the professional conduct of those eminent and virtuous persons who took no part in political proceedings. Some of the very worst men in the Revolution belonged to the class of lawyers: nay, several of these bad obtained a certain success in the profession; and the name of one, at least, greatly distinguished by his legal acquirements, was also involved in the disgrace of a measure among the worst of those dismal times.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
