Book Description:

This is Volume 2 of 4 - The Anti Monarchical Conspiracy. It focuses on the anti-monarchical conspiracy that was led by Jean Jacques Rousseau and Baron de Montesquieu. Barruel believed that the influence of these two writers was a necessary factor in the enactment of the French Revolution. The destruction of monarchies in Europe led to the triumph of the Jacobins. Barruel equated the rejection on monarchy with a rejection of any type of order and government. As a result, the principles of equality and liberty and their attacks against the monarchy were attacks against all governments and civil society.
