Summary Examines how massive counterrevolutionary movements profoundly affected the course of the Revolution, leading to the failure of constitutional government and, ultimately, to an elitist dictatorship (in the person of Napoleon Bonaparte) that paved the way for many of the struggles of the nineteenth century. Also explained is how the revolution's effects varied greatly according to regional economies, social structures, and religious affiliations.
