This textbook provides an ideal introduction to nineteenth-century France: a 'Century of Revolutions'. Written with the undergraduate student's needs in mind, Sharif Gemie works through the major and minor revolutions which altered the course of French history and which shaped the development of French society. Moving away from a Paris-centred view of the country, the author examines developments which unfolded across France, including studies of rural socialism in Mediterranean France, and peasant monarchism in the West. Following a broadly chronological sequence, each chapter is arranged in the same way, allowing the student to follow themes within the events. Each chapter ends with a selection of relevant contemporary documents in translation, offering the opportunity to tackle primary source material, and a comprehensive guide to further reading. * Assumes no prior knowledge of the subject area * Covers both major and minor revolutions, including the Revolutions of 1830 and 1848, the Paris Commune of 1871, and the proto-fascism of the anti-Dreyfusards * Provides primary source material at the end of each chapter * Offers a comprehensive guide to further reading at the end of each chapter * Follows a chronological sequence, with each chapter being arranged thematically within that sequence
