The Bourgeois Citizen in Nineteenth-Century France: Gender, Sociability, and the Uses of Emulation

Synopsis

This book analyzes the process by which class society developed in post-revolutionary France. Carol E. Harrison addresses the construction of class and gender identities, and shows how the sociable interaction of male citizens was the crucial bridge between the destruction of France's old regime and the development of a mature industrial class society.
