Jean Pierre Brissot also called Brissot de Warville was a French political writer. He was born in 1754 and died in 1793. He early turned his attention to public affairs, associating himself with such men as Petion, Robespierre, Marat, etc. In 1780 he published his Theories des Lois Criminelles, and two years afterwards an important collection called the Bibliotheque des Lois Criminelles. During the French Revolution he made himself known as a politician and one of the leaders of the Girondist party. The extreme views of the men of the 'Mountain' having prevailed over more moderate counsels, Jean Brissot, like most of his party, were executed by the guillotine.
