Books By Author Dan Edelstein

Scripting Revolution by Dan Edelstein Scripting Revolution, Paperback (October 2015)

This volume of essays proposes a new, historical approach to the comparative study of revolutions by exploring the ways in which they create, inherit, or extend recognizable scripts for political action and social action.

Terror of Natural Right by Dan Edelstein Terror of Natural Right, Paperback (February 2011)

Argues that the revolutionaries of eighteenth-century France used the natural right concept of the 'enemy of the human race' - an individual who has transgressed the laws of nature and must be executed without judicial formalities - to authorize three-quarters of the deaths during the Terror.

Enlightenment by Dan Edelstein Enlightenment, Paperback (November 2010)

What was the Enlightenment? Seeking to recover where, when, and how the concept of 'the Enlightenment' first emerged, this title departs from genealogies that trace it back to political and philosophical developments in England and the Dutch Republic.
