About the Author

Philip Nord is Professor of History, Princeton University, and the author of Paris Shopkeepers and the Politics of Resentment.


This first-rate book should be read by all students of the Third French Republic as well as all serious students of modern democratic politics. Nord has upheld his reputation in this excellent book as one of this country's most outstanding social historians of the politics of the Third Republic. -- Eric Arnold, Jr. * History *
[A] groundbreaking and impressively researched work on the transition to democracy in France's Third Republic. Nord...carefully explains how and why democratic institutions took root in France by the mid-1880s and how a democratic citizenry arose. * Library Journal *
This well-written book offers a convincing and original approach to understanding the birth of democracy in nineteenth-century France; it also makes a vital contribution to democratic transition theory in the modern, global context. -- Elinor A. Accampo * Journal of Interdisciplinary History *
This book is a valuable history of associative movements in France and their role in politics, a largely uncharted area of historiography. As a pioneer study, it concurs with the re-evaluation and possibly the rehabilitation of the Empire--a new tendency in French historiography. -- Danielle Tartakowsky * International Review of Social History [UK] *
Rather than viewing the Third French Republic as a failure from a 1940 perspective, Nord explores elegantly and convincingly the dynamic roles of institutions and associations that claimed a public sphere in the transition to a democratic Republic from the authoritarian Second Empire...An excellent study, meticulously researched, with supportive illustrations and rich bibliographic footnotes. Highly recommended. * Choice *
