Of Greenwood's series of five historical dictionaries covering modern France from the Revolution through the Third Republic, this is the longest. Perhaps this reflects changes in historiography that find historians such as David Pinckney affirming the importance of this lesser-known era in the formation of modern French society and institutions...The numerous entries by Guillaume de Bertier de Sauvigny, the ranking authority on the period, assure the prestige of the work. Highly recommended for college and university libraries. Choice This dictionary contains more than 900 articles written by 75 scholars from countries throughout the world dealing with major people, places, and events in France from 1815 to 1852. It is intended to serve as a useful reference guide in many fields; in addition to the standard entries on writers, politicians, kings, battles, newspapers, scientists, philosophers, generals, artists, revolutionaries, laws, and schools, there are articles that reflect the triumph of social history. The dictionary also features extensive articles on the principal social and intellectual movements of the period.
