Paris in Modern Times: From the Old Regime to the Present Day [9781350005525]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Drawing upon a vast body of historical scholarship, Casey Harison's Paris in Modern Times provides the first detailed academic history of Paris in the modern age. Chronologically surveying Paris's history from the Old Regime of the late-18th century through to the present day, this book explores the social, economic, political and cultural developments that come together to tell the story of this iconic city. Each chapter has an introduction and illuminating `sidebars' that touch upon the ways in which Parisian history has intersected with wider changes in France and beyond. The text, which also includes a wealth of images, maps, and a further reading section, takes the opportunity to place Paris and its history in a broader French, Atlantic and global historical context in order to cover an essential aspect of what has been such an important city the world over. Paris in Modern Times is vital reading for anyone seeking to know more about the history of Paris or the history of France since the French Revolution.
AUTHOR: Casey Harison is Professor of History and Director of the Center for Communal Studies at the University of Southern Indiana, USA. He is the author of The Stonemasons of Creuse in Nineteenth-Century Paris (2008).
