This study analyzes the family life and public careers of six generations of a notable Parisian family, the Cochins. Bourgeois merchants in the 17th and 18th centuries, the Cochins earned nobility through the office of alderman (^D'echevin) of Paris. Their family ethos fostered a much-needed element in French public life: a cautious, critical, liberal reform that reflected an independence from the Left, the Legitimist--and later nationalist--Right, as well as the Catholic Church. Still, even these reforming conservatives, however liberal, ultimately found themselves opposing the Third Republic.

Winnie highlights the contributions made by the Cochins and the opposition of the Third Republic. He approaches this task not by looking at a mere series of political crises, but rather by examining the cultural background and the family ethos that sustained them from the Old Regime to World War I. Like much of the latest work in modern French social history, this book finds a significant cultural divide between revolutionary republicanism and even liberal notables from the Old Regime. It demonstrates how these tensions continued through the 19th and into the 20th century. This reflects the fundamental incompatibility between France's political legacies--sustained by powerful and abiding social and cultural factors--that has shaped French life to this day.

Review:

"[t]he Cochins do not need these particular credentials to engage our interest; the complexities of their lives as men in a revolutionary era, doing their best in their relaionships with their fathers and their sons, their peers and their inferiors are quite sufficient. The principal virtue of Winnie's book, is that, with the aid of the family's own remarkable archive, it breaths life into the often stuffy figures of bourgeois men, including their hesitancies and failings."-H-France Book Reviews

"This excellent work of cultural and political history, at once scholarly, informed, and instructive, chronicles the history of the Cochin family..."-European Review of History
