About the Author

Arno Mayer is Professor Emeritus of European History at Princeton University. His books include The Furies: Violence and Terror in the French and Russian Revolutions, The Persistence of the Old Regime: Europe to the Great War, and Why Did the Heavens Not Darken? The 'Final Solution' in History.


A seminal book-extremely challenging. The historical and political implications of the 'Mayer thesis' will be widely discussed in years to come-certainly not only by specialists. -- Carlo Ginzburg
Academics like me often wield the term 'modernity' as if it describes a centuries-old formation, but the fact is: a great part of Europe only became modern-in the sense of being post-feudal-in recent memory. The best treatment of this theme remains Arno Mayer's The Persistence of the Old Regime. -- Corey Robin
