The French Revolution in Culture and Society

Synopsis

This volume examines the issue of the timing of cultural change, problems of Revolutionary anticipations and reverberations, and the relationship between culture, politics, and society. The essays combine both old and new approaches, ranging from textual analysis to the study of local judicial records, from the psychohistorical to the demographic. But they all demonstrate, in very timely fashion, the usefulness of linking social and cultural history, broadly conceived, and of interdisciplinary approaches to the study of events.
