About the Author

Julia Nicholls is Lecturer in French and European Studies at King's College London. An intellectual historian of modern France, her research focuses on ideas of freedom and revolution, subjection, and social exclusion. She is particularly interested in how these ideas travelled across European borders and beyond.


'Revolutionary Thought after the Paris Commune is an excellent contribution to the scholarship on revolutionary ideas and our understanding of 1871 ... the book is well written, based upon a command of primary and secondary sources, and fairly balances both the successes and failures of the post-1871 revolutionary movement.' Casey Harison, European History Quarterly
'This is an important contribution to intellectual and modern French history collections.' G. P. Cox, Choice
