In recognition of Bastille Day, Matthew, in this special Monday episode, discusses the book that caused the French Revolution: "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" (The Dangerous Liaisons), written by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. The book -- perhaps unintentionally -- set off pious sentiment against the Ancien Regime, and its influence carries on today.
