Mutinous memories

A subjective history of French military protest in 1919

First Edition

Matt Perry

Published by Manchester University Press

Studies in Modern French History MUP

  • Coinciding with the centenary of the Great War>'s end, this book offers a timely contribution to our understanding the unruly conjuncture of revolution and peace-making in 1919
  • Drawing on mutineer testimony, this work probes the subjective world of those who mutinied in 1919: their senses, experiences, emotions and how this event imprinted upon their memory
  • Contributes to our understanding of a formative moment in the remaking of the French left, notably the emergence of the French Communist Party
  • Offers a provocative and synthetic way of re-addressing consciousness beyond the successive 'turns' to language, the senses, memory and emotions
