      The causes and antecedents of the French Revolution are explored in The Old Regime and the French Revolution by Alexis de Tocqueville. While still somewhat surprising to the modern ear unfamiliar with the French Revolution, Tocqueville’s conception of the Revolution was a major challenge to accepted contemporary views on the destruction of the Old regime. The Anatomy of Revolution is a book by Crane Brinton outlining the "uniformities" of four major political revolutions: the English Revolution of the s, the American, the French, and the Russian n notes how the revolutions followed a life-cycle from the Old Order to a moderate regime to a radical regime, to Thermidorian : Crane Brinton.

      This book was to be followed by a second volume dealing with the the Revolution itself, but he died before he could continue the work. That is a shame; it would have been interesting to have some more insight from him into the French, it seems unlikely that anyone has ever rendered a better description of his people than the one he offers in 4/5. "The Old Regime and the Revolution" is Tocqueville's great meditation on the origins and meanings of the French Revolution. One of the most profound and influential studies of this pivotal event, it remains a relevant and stimulating discussion of the problem of preserving individual and political freedom in the modern world.

According to Tocqueville's excellent analysis in his book, he argues that the waning vestiges of feudalism sowed the seeds of destruction of the Old Regime.
