"This is a carefully crafted piece of social history that broadly revises widely held preconceptions about ideological currents in the French Revolution. The issues it raises go beyond those that might appeal only to specialists in communal action and religion; historical sociologists and sociologists of culture will also find this to be an important and provocative study."--American Journal of Sociology

The French Revolution of 1789 was followed by a century of upheaval, rebellion, and change. Napoleonic dictatorship, monarchical restoration, Second Republic, and Second Empire all rapidly succeeded one another, and it was not until the advent of the Third Republic in the 1870s that political stability was restored. The period 1788-1880 thus possesses a unity as Revolutionary France, though it is seldom treated as a whole. In this volume, a team of leading international historians explorethe major issues of politics and society, together with the dynamics of culture, gender, national identity, and overseas empire, during this vital period of French history.
