Excellent essay on the Terror and on revolutionary violence. Not for those unfamiliar with the Revolution and a bit short in relation with the complexity of the subject.
Slavoj Žižek's Introduction is particularly rousing and interesting (qualities I find in all his writings) although it is a bit chaotic, but that is common in Žižek's work. I appreciated the analysis he did of Corolianus.
All in all, a provocative and enlightening analysis of not only the Grande Terreur but also of revolutionary violence.
