These large collections of documents were a fraction of his output. He wrote a Histoire politique de la Revolution française (1901), and a number of articles which were collected in volumes under the title Etudes et leçons sur la Révolution française (5 vols., 1893-1908). In a volume entitled Tame, hisitorien de la Révolution française (1908), Aulard submitted the method of the eminent philosopher to a criticism, severe, perhaps en unjust, but certainly well-informed. This was, as it were, the "manifesto" of the new school of criticism applied to the political and social history of the Revolution (see Les Annales révolutionnaires, June 1908).
