Synopsis

A War of Ideas British Attitudes to the Wars Against Revolutionary France, 1792-1802 by Emma Vincent MacLeod

Offering a wide-ranging exploration of the attitudes of various groups of British people to the conflict in France during the 1790s, this book explores the government, their supporters and their opponents inside and outside Parliament, women, churchmen, and British public opinion. The text presents the debate in England and Scotland provoked by the war both as the sequel to the French Revolution and as a distinct debate in itself. The author argues that contemporaries saw this conflict as one one of the first since the wars of religion to be shaped by ideological hostility rather than solely by a struggle over strategic interests.
