In showing why the Carbonari conspiracy developed and how it was handled, the author has illuminated the workings of the political system of the Restoration--the structure and organization of its administration and political police and the operation of political justice in its courts.

The "July Revolution" of 1830 in France overthrew the King, brought down the Bourbon dynasty, and ended the fifteen-year era known as the Restoration. lt established the "July Monarchy" of Louis-Philippe, citizen King of the Hause of Orleans, a regime also destined for extinction eighteen years later. Although the 1848 revolt is of somewhat greater domestic political importance and considerably greater in its European scope and its social implications, the July Revolution of 1830 should not be relegated to the lower Ievels of historical consciousness. Yet, in modern times, even in France, relatively few works have been published concerning either the Restoration or the revolution which terminated it. New interpretations, such as the excellent works of Bertier de Sauvigny and David Pinkney have awakened the enthusiasm of scholars; but in general, the intrinsic importance of this period has been slighted for nearly a century. There are reasons for this inattention: At first glance, the era seems retrograde, born of a conservative reaction; and placid - it falls between Napoleon's giant earthquake on one side, and on the other, the dynamics of European nationalism, imperialism, and the class struggle. But the Restoration was neither archaic nor calm. lt was, for all its manifest anachronisms, an age of rapid political, cultural, and social growth. France, during these years, was maturing and ripening toward nationhood - and toward the collision of many complex forces, culminating in revolution.

Excerpt from The Bourbon Restoration On March 30th, 1814, the campaign of France terminated with the Battle of Paris. The last fractions of the Imperial army which interposed between the capital and the Allies were hurled back on the city. Joseph Bonaparte, the ex-King of Spain, the Emperor's Lieutenant-General, witnessed the scene from the heights of Montmartre. When he saw that Marmont and Mortier's attenuated battalions were enveloped and overborne, he sent word to the Marshals to make the best terms they could with the enemy, and himself fled to rejoin the Empress Marie Louise at Blois. After continuing the struggle for about three hours longer, Marmont asked for and obtained a suspension of hostilities. In the evening a convention was drawn up, under the terms of which the Russian and Prussian armies, the next day, made their entry into Paris. Napoleon himself was at Fontainebleau gathering round him the remnants of his army. Though he was a factor, which in all military calculations could never be overlooked, the situation seemed beyond the power even of his genius to retrieve. In Paris all eyes were turned towards the Tsar, whom circumstances had made the arbiter of the destinies of France. But Alexander had not yet decided, to his own satisfaction, the form which the future government was to assume. If he was determined to depose Napoleon, he had not yet settled the question as to who should be his successor. The plan of enthroning the Due d'Orleans or Bernadotte had much to commend it.
