Description
 
The guillotine is undoubtedly the most potent image of revolutionary France, the tool whereby a whole society was ‘redesigned’. Yet what came to be seen as an instrument of terror was, paradoxically, introduced as the result of the humanitarian feelings of men intent on revising an ancient and barbaric penal code. This book tells the grisly history of the guillotine with a wealth of fascinating and little known detail, as well as the debates that have surrounded it. Illustrations.
