CHOICE Review

A brief but highly interesting book useful to all levels of students of French history. Pinkney presents one of those ingeniously original hypotheses that strike one as obvious after a knowledgeable and insightful scholar points them out. The author is a veteran scholar and teacher who has presented with superb clarity his idea that the real turning point of modern French history came neither with the spectacular political developments of 1789-1815 or 1848-1852 nor with the extensive socioeconomic changes at the end of the 19th century, but in the 1840s. The book is topically organized, with chapters on economic, political, social-psychological, social-theoretical, artistic, and international developments. Graphics are minimal, but the book is nonetheless highly accessible to beginners and there is a huge documentary apparatus (a third of the volume). Could easily become one of those seminal interpretations that effect fundamental shifts in historical thinking.-M. Cherno, University of Virginia
