Urban Protest in Seventeenth-Century France: The Culture of Retribution

by

Urban Protest in Seventeenth-Century France: The Culture of Retribution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This lucid and wide-ranging survey is the first comparative study in English to explore popular uprisings in the cities of seventeenth-century France. Through close analysis of eyewitness narratives from protesters and authorities in more than fifteen cities, William Beik examines the complex social interaction between angry crowds and hard-pressed authorities. He adds a completely new chapter to the history of the crowd and traces the difficult and fragile connections between elite and popular culture in early modern France.
