Summary
This book is the first to synthesize in English the most recent research into the social history of France, from the collapse of the Ancien Regime to the consolidation of the Third Republic. By placing relations of power at the heart of his analysis, the author offers a new and coherent perspective on the relationship between political upheaval, economic change, the construction of new ideologies of gender and ethnicity, and daily life. The book offers to students a lively and clear introduction to this complex and fascinating society and provides specialists with a model for the interpretation of French social history
