excerpt from book cover: At the end of the eighteenth century, in the midst of the era of revolution, the Belgians reestablished the ancien regime. In contrast to the Americans and the French, the Belgian revolutionaries fought for their independence against the backdrop of a prosperous, industrializing society. Centered on the capital city of Brussels, this study of the Brabant Revolution and the first French Occupation investigates the struggle among three revolutionary movements. With no guillotine to silence minority opposition, the traditionalists, the democrats, and the Jacobins argued for seven years over sovereignty, natural rights, and economic liberty. They coalesced only to drive the Austrian troops from their lands in this first battle for Belgin independence. The victory of the Brussels traditionalists reflected the strength of the privileged coalition of nobility, clergy, and guilds within the city.
