Private Lives & Public Affairs: Causes Celebres/Prerevol Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a book about stories, about the public impact of tales of private life. The stories in question are those of the parties to a series of highly publicized court cases, or causes celebers, which gripped the attention of the French-and especially the Parisian-reading public in the two decades preceding the Revolution of 1789.

Synopsis:

From 1770 to 1789 a succession of highly publicized cases riveted the attention of the French public. Maza argues that the reporting of these private scandals had a decisive effect on the way in which the French public came to understand public issues in the years before the Revolution.
