This book provides a detailed account of French history from the oripins of the Thrid Republic, born out of the collapse of Napoleon III's Second Empire, to the coming of the Great WAr in 1914. Part 1 begins with the fall of the "notables" and the victory of the republicans. Then follows a picture of the economy and society of late nineteenth-century France, and an examination of spiritual and cultural development under the increasing threat from nationalist and socialist forces. The moderates' brief ascendancy at the end of the century followed by the extreme sentiments unleashed at the time of the Dreyfus affair, brings the story in Part 2 to a more passionately political period, when the republic finallynbecame established as a bulwark of bourgeois prosperity, witnessing the rise of the banks and big business, and the dangerous revival of colonial expansion.

Review Text

  • By Adam D Zientek on October 8, 2015

    this book is without question the worst of the cambridge series on modern france. without question.perhaps something went missing in the translation, but its prose is confused, wandering, and often non-sensical; its arguments are often unsubstantiated and severely undirected; its frequent references to obscure administrators and institutions assumes the reader already has an encyclopedic post-graduate understanding of French political history, and its structure awkward and confusing. i would highly recommend NOT using this text, either in the classroom or for your own reference. there are plenty of monographs on this time period that do better work: schwartz, weber, nord, and rearick, just to name four.don't waste your time or your patience with this one.

    This book is somewhat more scientific than I hoped. Of course it contains a lot of interesting info, exactly what I want, but the writing style is a little dry and photographs are lacking. I am enjoying it anyway!
