A Tale of Two Revolutions
I read this insightful essay twenty years ago on the crucial differences between the French and American Revolutions. This perspective sheds light on the "revolutions" occurring today in Libya, Egypt, etc. Sadly, although more religiously-based, these contemporary uprisings are closer to the French Revolution than to the American Revolution. This means there will be more terror and horror than liberty or virtue.
