Research Over many years I have built up an international reputation as one of the foremost historians of the French Revolution and am known, above all, for my research on two key areas - the ideological origins of the Revolution, and the French Revolutionary Terror. I have published extensively on French political ideology and political culture during the eighteenth century. My first book, The Politics of Virtue in Enlightenment France (Palgrave, 2001) traced the development of a key intellectual concept of the eighteenth century, that of political virtue. My study examined the strategic use of the concept of virtue, with its different strands, tracing how virtue developed into a central ideological component in the origins of the French Revolution.

My most recent book, Choosing Terror : Virtue Friendship and Authenticity in the French Revolution (Oxford University Press, 2013) focused on the genesis of what I termed ’the politicians’ terror’ in revolutionary politics. I examined ways in which the demanding ideology of political virtue clashed with the reality of politics in the French Revolution, and how this gap contributed to the genesis of a form of terror that was particularly directed towards revolutionary politicians.
I also have research interests and publications in Enlightenment views on the history of gender, the role of women, and on religious toleration. I have written numerous articles and book chapters in the field of the French Revolution and eighteenth-century French politics and political culture, notably on the parlements, Robespierre, Saint-Just, and Brissot, and co-edited a collection on the key concept of conspiracy in revolutionary politics, Conspiracy in the French Revolution (Manchester University Press, 2007).
