A Tale of Two Cities is one of Dickens`s most exciting books, set against the backdrop of the French revolution, in which two generations struggle against the injustices of first a corrupt aristocracy and then the mindless rule of the mob.

`A Tale of Two Cities` (1859), Dickens` greatest historical novel, traces the private lives of a group of people caught up in the cataclysm of the French Revolution and the Terror. Dickens based his historical detail on Carlyle`s great work - `The FrenchRevolution` - and also on his own observations and investigations during numerous visits to Paris. `The best story I have written` was Dickens` own verdict on `A Tale of Two Cities`, and the reader is unlikely to disagree with this judgement of a story which combines historical fact with the author`s unsurpassed genius for poignant tales of human suffering, self-sacrifice, and redemption.
