About the Author

Paul Veyne is Professor at the College de France.


From reviews of A History of Private Life:
The new emphasis on the history of everybody has now been consecrated in [this] ambitious five-volume series...Copious illustrative materials--paintings, drawings, caricatures, and photographs, all cannily chosen and wittily captioned to display domestic life...Magnificent.

-- Roger Shattuck * New York Times Book Review *
From reviews of A History of Private Life:
This series has deservedly attracted huge praise from historians of all hues for its scholarly imagination and beautiful presentation.

-- Andrew Freedman * Financial Times *
