The Bourgeois Century

Roger Magraw

In this lively and stimulating study, Roger Magraw examines how the 19-century French bourgeoisie struggled and eventually succeeded in consolidating the gains it made in 1789. Incorporating the most recent research on religion and anticlericalism, the devolopment of the economy, the role of women in society, and the educational system, he lucidly defends the view that the French revolution was indeed a "bourgeois revolution."
