Fragile Lives: Violence, Power and Solidarity in Eighteenth-century Paris
The rich and complex texture of working-class neighborhoods in eighteenth-century Paris comes vibrantly alive in this collage of the experiences of ordinary people-men and women, rich and poor, masters and servants, neighbors and colleagues. Exploring three arenas of conflict and solidarity-the home, the workplace, and the street-Arlette Farge offers the reader an intimate social history, bringing long-dead citizens and vanished social groups back to life with sensitivity and perception.
