He held a Rockefeller Fellowship for research in France and was a visiting professor at the University of Chicago and Harvard University. An editor of History magazine, Cobban also published articles in the English Historical Review , the Political Science Quarterly , International Affairs and other historical and political journals. The essays in this volume were all written by his students, except one by his friend, George Rude.

Revisionist view In Cobban used his inaugural lecture as professor of French history at University College, London to attack what he called the "social interpretation" of the French Revolution. The lecture was later published as "The Myth of the French Revolution" Cobban and Furet believed that the Revolution did little to change French society, in direct opposition to the orthodox Marxist school,[2] which saw the Revolution as the rise of the bourgeoisie and proletariat against the nobility and the transition from feudalism to capitalism, making it a symbol of progress.

Cobban claimed that the quality of daily life after the Revolution remained basically unchanged, identifying that: France was still a rural society with small farms. Mountain and forest still covered, as they do today, large tracts of country, though under pressure of rural over-population farming had pushed into marginal land on moor and hill-top that has since been abandoned.

Agriculture, little influenced by the new methods developed in eighteenth-century England, followed its routine of the Middle Ages. Industry was still largely domestic. In all these fundamental respects it matters little whether we are writing of or The Revolution did not materially add to or subtract from the basic resources of France, though it altered the use that was, or could be, made of them.

This was a town of iron foundries and coal mining and employed in these trades. Cobban claimed that the urban poor fared worse than before as they lost the charity supplied by the Roman Catholic Church. This occurred in when the National Constituent Assembly abolished the tithe and sold Church properties.
