1914. Poet, essayist, satirist, and historian, Belloc wrote from the Roman Catholic viewpoint. He was a prolific writer, authoring more than 150 books in his lifetime, he was also a close friend of G.K. Chesterton and with him founded the New Witness, a weekly political newspaper, which promoted distributism, a medieval, anticapitalist, and anti-Fabian socialist philosophy. This volume contains Belloc's historical study of Maximilien Robespierre. Known to his contemporaries as the Incorruptible, he is one of the most controversial and perhaps misunderstood figures of the French Revolution. His name has become synonymous for that period of the Revolution known as the Reign of Terror. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
