From Library Journal: "Holy Madness covers a century of revolutionary fervor that started with the American Revolution and ended with the demise of the Paris Commune in 1871. The Marquis de Lafayette, Francisco de Miranda, Giuseppe Mazzini, and Giuseppe Garibaldi are just a few of the paladins of liberty who roam the pages of this saga. Their common bond was a liberal ideology that rested on a belief in the innate goodness of human beings. Inevitably, the revolutionary fires they started consumed many of the souls that were seized by this holy madness." Zamoyski is a freelance historian and author of over a dozen books, including two major bestsellers, his history of Poland, The Polish Way, and his account of Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812. Zamoyski’s books have been translated into more than a dozen languages. Most items ship with tracking numbers and (generally over $15.00) jacket protectors if applicable.
