Encyclopédie: the triumph of reason in an unreasonable age

Blom, Philipp, 1970-

This tells the story of one of the most revolutionary books in history and the young men who risked everything to write it. The 'Encyclopédie' was so subversive that it was banned by the Pope and was seen as one of the causes of the French Revolution. The writers included Diderot, d'Alembert, Rousseau and Voltaire
