(p.235) 9 The Crisis of 1799
War, Revolution, and the Bureaucratic State

Howard G. Brown

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the fall of the French Republic during the crisis of 1799. This crisis resulted from the contrast between the high political aspirations of republicanism and the sordid reality of the manipulation of elections. In addition, the French Directory also failed to achieve its stated aims of victorious peace abroad and the rule of law at home. The Republic failed to accomplish enough to allow it to continue its existence.

Keywords:   French Republic, crisis of 1799, republicanism, elections, French Directory, France
