Cover of book 2


My second book, The French Revolution: Faith, Desire, and Politics. A narrative history of the Revolution aimed at undergraduates and general readers, it focuses on the impact that questions of religion and gender had on the way that events unfolded, while introducing readers to some of the classic nineteenth-century historians of the Revolution.

Praise for my first book:

“In this fascinating political and cultural study, Noah Shusterman brilliantly succeeds in demonstrating how the process of controlling the observance of time was resolutely contested by the French people.”—Malcolm H. Crook, Professor of French History, Keele University

"Shusterman's book is well written and researched, and firmly grounded in a range of provincial archives.." --Nigel Aston, American Historical Review

"the most comprehensive account of the Revolutionary calendar’s history currently available." --Joseph Clarke, The Journal of Modern History

"Religion and the Politics of Time is a model of both scholarly thoroughness and skillful analysis... It is an impressive achievement." --James Friguglietti, The Catholic Historical Review

"clear and largely jargon-free"  --William Doyle, H-France Review
