PROF PETER MCPHEE
In the second half of the 18th century, much of the Western world experienced unprecedented change. The "Age of Revolutions" was a key turning-point in world history. The most spectacular examples of this upheaval occurred in the 13 British colonies along the eastern coast of North America 1776-83 and then in France in 1789-95. This subject is a study of the origins and nature of the American and French Revolutions and their outcomes. How &ldquo.revolutionary&rdquo. were they? And what impact did they have on the rest of the world?
