Life in Revolutionary France (Hardback)

£85.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The French Revolution brought momentous political, social, and cultural change. Life in Revolutionary France asks how these changes affected everyday lives, in urban and rural areas, and on an international scale.



An international cast of distinguished academics and emerging scholars present new research on how people experienced and survived the revolutionary decade, with a particular focus on individual and collective agency as discovered through the archival record, material culture, and the history of emotions. It combines innovative work with student-friendly essays to offer fresh perspectives on topics such as:



* Political identities and activism

* Gender, race, and sexuality

* Transatlantic responses to war and revolution

* Local and workplace surveillance and transparency

* Prison communities and culture

* Food, health, and radical medicine

* Revolutionary childhoods



With an easy-to-navigate, three-part structure, illustrations and primary source excerpts, Life in Revolutionary France is the essential text for approaching the experiences of those who lived through one of the most turbulent times in world history.

Mette Harder is Associate Professor of History at SUNY Oneonta, USA. Jennifer Ngaire Heuer is Associate Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA. She is the author of The Family and The Nation: Gender and Citizenship in Revolutionary France, 1789-1830 (2005).
