Belfast In The French Revolution tells the story of the French Revolution by use of materials taken from the columns of "The Northern Star", the Belfast United Irish paper. An introductory chapter explains why Belfast was predisposed by its own history to indulge in a wholehearted and unanimous vicarious participation in French affairs, the like of which occurred nowhere else.

The background to the Revolution is explained in a chapter on its philosophical antecedents on "Voltaire and Rousseau". The story is carried from 1789 to 1794, with chapters on Mirabeau's attempted reform of the Church; the Girondins; the reform of the Calendar; and the year of Robespierre and Saint-Just.

Also included is the full Northern Star account of the great Belfast Review and Celebration held on Bastille Day, 1792. 148 pp.
