From the Publisher:

The Human Tradition in Modern France gives a human perspective on the history of France from 1789 to the present, revealed in essays that highlight individuals and intriguing events that too often have been lost under labels and statistics. Readers will gain an understanding of the humor and passion in French history from these new, original essays by well-established scholars. This collection also relates the individuals, events, and controversies to current debates.

Modern France comes to life in essays on the experiences of five individuals during the French Revolution; the story of Charlotte Corday, a famous artist who murdered French revolutionary journalist Jean-Paul Marat; the journal La Voix des Femmes, published in 1848, which called upon women to become politically active; the public¹s reaction in 1907 to the publication of Léon Blum¹s Du Mariage, a lengthy essay on French mores which denounced the bourgeois conception of marriage; and the story of Charles Anderson, an African-American expatriate who lived in Paris through two world wars. All readers who are interested in French history, modern European history, and world history will be intrigued by this fascinating new book.
