Summary

The bestselling memoir by France’s president, Emmanuel Macron

Some believe that our country is in decline, that the worst is yet to come, that our civilization is being wiped out. That only withdrawal or civil strife are on our horizon. That to protect ourselves from the great transformations taking place around the globe, we should go back in time and apply the recipes of last century.

Others imagine that France can continue on its slow downward slide. That the game of political juggling―first the Left, then the Right―will allow us breathing space. The same faces and the same people who have been around for so long.

I am convinced that they are all wrong. It is their models, their recipes, that have simply failed. France as a whole has not failed.

In Revolution, Emmanuel Macron, the youngest president in the history of France, reveals his personal story and his inspirations and discusses his vision of France and its future in a new world that is undergoing a “great transformation” that has not been experienced since the invention of the printing press and the Renaissance.

This is a remarkable book that seeks to lay the foundations for a new society—a compelling testimony and statement of values by an important political leader who has become the flag-bearer for a new kind of politics.

Review Quotes

“Emmanuel Macron has stood up for liberal values…He is committed to a better future for the French people. He appeals to people’s hopes and not their fears.”

Barack Obama

“Macron has been an object of fascination ever since he unexpectedly came to power. In this political autobiography, he recounts his origins and explains his centrist philosophy.”

New York Times

“President Macron has set out a clear vision for the revitalization of the EU.”

New Statesman (London)

“Now that he is president, now that he has shown that he can translate the ephemera of ideas into cold, hard power, it is worth returning to his words to find out what kind of leader he plans to
 be…Revolution provides some insight into a man who, whatever you think of him, is deeply unusual.”

Sunday Telegraph (London)

“A book that should be read by anybody who wants to understand what has been going on in French politics in the past few years.”

Observer (London)
