    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Using the example of the Monarchiens, a group of constitutional monarchists, Friedemann Pestel examines how émigrés moved from being on the defensive to political action in the 1790s. Their pan-European connections gave them extensive visibility. The study shows the interconnections between lands of origin and exile. It corrects the prevalent view of emigrants as historical losers.

    Reviews

    "Dass es Pestel gelingt, uns die Fülle der Konstitutionalisierungsoptionen, vor der die Zeitgenossen standen und die in der Historiographie schnell vernachlässigt wurden, vor Augen zu führen, ist einer der vielen Verdienste seiner brillanten Studie."
    Isabelle Deflers in: Zeitschrift für Historische Forschung 43 (2016) 4
