Festivals and the French Revolution. Mona Ozouf.

Festivals and the French Revolution

Harvard University Press, 1988. Hardcover. Near fine (some foxing to the edges of the text block). Fine dust jacket. Hardcover. xviii + 347 pages, with bibliography and index. Illustrated with black and white images. A work that shows that festivals in the French revolutionary period were much more than bizarre marginalia but showed a society in the process of recreating itself. Historians have long recognized the importance of festivals as a symbol of the Revolution but differed as to their meanings. The suthor here argues for the fundamental ciherence and profound unity of the festival as both event and register of reference and attitude. Fine / fine. Item #E24301
