Louis Blanc (1811-82) was a French historian and politician whose writings had a considerable influence on the development of French socialism. In his famous Organisation du travail (1839) he called for social reform by action of the State, an unusual position at the time. As a member of the provisional government established after the 1848 Revolution, he campaigned for workers' rights, advocating the creation of cooperative workshops. His twelve-volume Histoire de la Revolution Francaise (1847-62), most of which he wrote while in exile in England, combines years of thorough research with Blanc's characteristic socialist and republican enthusiasm. Volume 2, published in 1847, opens with an overview of French society under Louis XVI. It shows how the financial crisis led to popular unrest, and focuses on the main events of the year 1789, from the Estates-General to the storming of the Bastille and the abolition of feudalism.
