Anglo-French attitudes

Comparisons and transfers between English and French intellectuals since the eighteenth century

edited by Christophe Charle, Julien Vincent, and Winter Jay

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A new interpretation of the intellectual and cultural history of two major European nations which combines long-term perspectives with detailed contextual case studies
  • Brings together contributions by experts from different disciplines: cultural history, intellectual history, gender studies, the social history of intellectuals, history of science, and literature
  • Includes contributions by promising young scholars and major authorities in their fields, including Lawrence Brockliss, Pascale Casanova, Christophe Charle, Stefan Collini, Christophe Prochasson, Daniel Roche, Jay Winter
  • Not only a study of intellectual comparisons and transfers since the eighteenth century but it is in itself an exercise in comparisons and transfers both between different disciplines and between British and French historiographies
