Yet publicity and press bred baffled aspirations, and change proved as threatening as inertia. The French entered the modern age kicking and screaming against its discomforts. When depression struck a brittle economy, new claimants to jobs outside the home saw meager wages dwindle like those of other workers. Some turned to prostitution to make ends meet or, in the Indian summer of French Catholicism, to God. The government tried deflation, which only made things worse. Competitive intellectual preening grew more vapid, competitive political aspersions more scurrilous. The general public grumbled, tightened belts, struck, rioted, and, when all else failed, rounded on immigrants: "unwanted strangers, intruders, parasites, speaking in strange accents and cooking with strange smells."

The life of a simple man by Émile Guillaumin( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In order to 'show the gents of Moulins, of Paris and elsewhere, just what a sharecropper's life is like, ' Emile Guillaumin, under the guise of fiction, wrote this story of 'Tiennon, ' a French peasant born fifty years before him in 1823. A peasant himself, Guillaumin was unique in that, after a few years of schooling, he continued to work his small farm in central France to the end of his life, reserving nights for study and writing. Guillaumin felt that the French peasant had been misrepresented in contemporary literature--either romanticized as in George Sand or depicted as a dumb victim of the forces of nature as in Zola--and wanted to correct the picture. The result is a moving first-person story that can be read as a fictional account, as well as the best kind of material for historians seeking to understand how nineteenth-century French peasants really lived."--Publisher's Web site

"In this rich and colourful survey of European history since 1715, trends, processes, events and institutions are related directly to the conditions of everyday life.

The result is a survey text of unusual depth and readability, ideally suited to courses in modern European history and Western civilization." [Back cover]
