Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

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.

About the Author

Sarah Maza is Professor of History at Northwestern University and the author of Servants and Masters in Eighteenth-Century France: The Uses of Loyalty (1983).
