This week we are going to participate in a debate. Since our readings are based on revolutions, we will take a look the French Revolution. The debate is “Was the French Revolution Worth Its Human Cost?”
The readings come from Taking Sides: Clashing Views on Controversial Issues In World Civilizations. You will be put in two groups – Yes or No.
In the “Yes” group you will read Peter Kropotkin’s piece from his book The Great French Revolution 1789-1793 to defend your point that you have been assigned.
