While the revolutions are second only to World War II as research areas in French History, specific titles also address those studying many aspects of 19th-century French life, including: women's periodicals; literary, musical, theatre and opera reviews; medical and trade titles; regional papers; and newsletters.
The Revolution of 1848 caused the final collapse of monarchy in France, and in the power vacuum that followed a range of competing voices sought to control the future direction of the country. The social and political upheavals of this period are richly detailed in this unique collection of newspapers and periodicals -- an essential resource for understanding modern European history.
