Edward Berenson recounts the trial of Henriette Caillaux, the wife of a powerful French cabinet minister, who murdered her husband's enemy Le Figaro editor Gaston Calmette, in March 1914, on the eve of World War I.

Heroes of empire five charismatic men and the conquest of Africa by Edward Berenson ( )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the decades of empire (1870-1914), legendary heroes and their astonishing deeds of conquest gave imperialism a recognizable human face. Henry Morton Stanley, Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, Charles Gordon, Jean-Baptiste Marchand, and Hubert Lyautey all braved almost unimaginable dangers among "savage" people for their nation's greater good. This vastly readable book, the first comparative history of colonial heroes in Britain and France, shows via unforgettable portraits the shift from public veneration of the peaceful conqueror to unbridled passion for the vanquishing hero
The Statue of Liberty : a transatlantic story by Edward Berenson ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A universally recognized icon, the Statue of Liberty is perhaps the most beloved of all American symbols. Yet no one living in 1885, when the crated monument arrived in New York Harbor, could have foreseen the central place the Statue of Liberty would come to occupy in the American imagination. With the particular insights of a cultural historian and scholar of French history, Edward Berenson tells the little-known stories of the statue's improbable beginnings, transatlantic connections, and the changing meanings it has held for each successive American generation. --from publisher description
Populist religion and left-wing politics in France, 1830-1852 by Edward Berenson ( Book )
11 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examining the democratic-socialist politics of the Second Republic, Edward Berenson delves into the largely unexplored content of the Montagnards' ideology and traces its diffusion and reception in the populist religious culture of rural France. This book shows how the urbanbased Montagnards were able to appeal to rural Frenchmen by advocating doctrines grounded in the ideals and morality of early Christianity. Originally published in 1984. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from th

Constructing charisma : celebrity, fame, and power in nineteenth-century Europe by Edward Berenson ( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Railroads, telegraphs, lithographs, photographs, and mass periodicals--the major technological advances of the 19th century seemed to diminish the space separating people from one another, creating new and apparently closer, albeit highly mediated, social relationships. Nowhere was this phenomenon more evident than in the relationship between celebrity and fan, leader and follower, the famous and the unknown. By mid-century, heroes and celebrities constituted a new and powerful social force, as innovations in print and visual media made it possible for ordinary people to identify with the famous; to feel they knew the hero, leader, or "star"; to imagine that public figures belonged to their private lives. This volume examines the origins and nature of modern mass media and the culture of celebrity and fame they helped to create. Crossing disciplines and national boundaries, the book focuses on arts celebrities (Sarah Bernhardt, Byron and Liszt); charismatic political figures (Napoleon and Wilhelm II); famous explorers (Stanley and Brazza); and celebrated fictional characters (Cyrano de Bergerac)

Mots pour maux: Maladies nerveuses et ecrits contagieux sous le Second Empire et la Troisieme Republique by Nils Froment ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Conveniently labeled as scapegoats for the rise of industrialism, working class women were being viewed as mutants instilling pathos in society and history, leading ultimately to physical degeneration and political decadence. Their presence in society offered a pretext to draw medical, moral and socio-economical parallels between the emergence of witchcraft in the fourteenth century and the rise of hysteria and epilepsy in the second half of the nineteenth century
Reactionary or Modern? The Devote in Fact and Fiction in Late Nineteenth-Century France by Rachel Marie Wimpee ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
One of the lasting legacies of the Third Republic is its sweeping secularizing mission. My dissertation examines the figure of the devoutly Catholic woman -- or devote -- in this context, from the beginnings of the Third Republic to the 1905 separation of church and state. Applying an interdisciplinary approach using novels of Balzac, the Goncourt brothers, Zola, and popular novelists, visual representations, medical treatises, essays, funeral remembrances, personal letters, and other sources, I explore representations of the devote as they reflected social, political, and gendered anxieties about the tenacity of republican institutions, the role of women in private and public, the reach of Catholic ideas to French citizens, and the differences between men and women during the period

From Christian militants to republican renovators: The third ralliement of Catholics in postwar France, 1944--1965 by Arthur Plaza ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The MRP, then, though often regarded as a failure for its brief existence, facilitated two fundamental transformations: it integrated Catholics into the Republic, short-circuiting any tendencies to ghettoize themselves into a political counter-culture; and it helped make the postwar Republic less stridently secular than historians usually recognize
Career Ambitions: Representations of the Legal Professions in France, 1830--1850 by Emily Craighead Teising ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The first chapter explores the choice to become a lawyer in post-Revolutionary France by reading coming-of-age novels alongside encyclopedic guides written to help young people choose a profession. In the second chapter, I analyze the physiognomy specific to lawyers in literature. In the third chapter, I posit that interactions between these lawyers, their clients and families reveal ambivalence toward their strategies, motivations, and ultimately the place of lawyers in the private sphere. The fourth chapter of my dissertation addresses representations of criminal lawyers in novels and in the press. Finally, the fifth chapter analyzes the intersections between the functions of novelists and lawyers in constructing narratives
The Battle for Health in France: The Role of Ideas and Discourse in Constructing the Political Economy of Health Policy Reform (1990--2010) by Lisa Gentile ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Crisis framing and the need to reform combined with a refashioned solidarity rhetoric served as malleable tools used to justify change and a redefinition of social and individual responsibility in the financing and provision of health care. Neoliberalism, market ideology and this economic view of health, dominant in the international policy community, were central in the diffusion of policy ideas and discourse, providing the arguments and justifications for a new policy mix. While there was often political and social resistance to what was viewed as a right-wing plan to dismantle the French social model, many in the French health economic and policy communities were receptive to the neoliberal critique and helped to translate policy ideas coming from managed care and managed competition into the French setting
