The Transformation of Republicanism in the Sister Republics

Cover for The Political Culture of the Sister Republics, 1794–1806, The Transformation of Republicanism in the Sister Republic, is a chapter within the volume The Political Culture of the Sister Republics. France, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and Italy, 1794-1806, edited by Joris Oddens, Erik Jacobs, and Mart Rutjes.

This volume brings together experts on the history of the various revolutionary Sister Republics.

Parliamentary practices, the comparability of 'universal' political concepts, late-eighteenth century Republicanism, the relationship between press and politics, and the interaction between the Sister Republics and France are studied from a comparative, transnational perspective.
