Talleyrand-Périgord, 1754-1838, was a French career diplomat, who, despite his noble birth, managed to negotiate the French Revolution unscathed. The canniest of politicians, he enjoyed a high-profile status both before and after the Revolution, becoming an indispensable and influential spokesman for the Ancien Régime and Napoleon alike. In this work he draws upon his experience as French foreign minister to comment upon the prospect for commercial enterprise in the newly independent United States; where France was ?fearful that the same principles of independence . should introduce themselves amongst her own people?, England ?forgot her resentment?.
