Hey, I'm in the middle of writing my Coursework for history and I've decided to focus on the French Revolution, and the causes for said revolution.
I'm just really struggling to find appropriate sources that I can talk about in my response.
Any help or tips would be really appreciated.

I just went on google scholar & searched this up, literally dozens of papers & books on the topic (ok if your in school & don't have institutional access to all papers, but im sure you can find enough free to read, and go to library once you have a list of books you want).
