The Return of Interest Groups
This chapter examines the return of interest groups in the French government following the adoption of the Constitution of year III. The war effort was one of the most important conflicts among the state elites. From the Thermidorian Convention to the Consulate, various factions challenged the government's war aims and its methods for pursuing them. This chapter suggests that the changes in military control and administration brought about by the French Revolution stemmed largely from conflict over state power.
