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 1,089 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. Edward Berenson
The Statue of Liberty : a transatlantic story by Edward Berenson ( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 664 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

Constructing charisma : celebrity, fame, and power in nineteenth-century Europe by Edward Berenson ( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 235 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)

Reactionary or Modern? The Devote in Fact and Fiction in Late Nineteenth-Century France by Rachel Marie Wimpee ( Book )
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
A Civilized Yogi: The Life of French Explorer Alexandra David-Neel by Heidi Kasevich ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
News of Alexandra David-Neel's extraordinary journey to Lhasa made headline news in scores of newspapers in the mid-1920s; the 56-year-old explorer was endowed with an indomitable spirit and a superhuman ability to endure pain. The main purpose of this biography is to go beyond this adventure hero myth by examining the ups and downs, accomplishments and challenges of a life that was both multifaceted and inextricably intertwined with the history of French politics, culture, and society. The essential feature of her world-view was a clash between tradition and modernity, a productive tension which both enhanced her reputation as an Orientalist and contributed to subtle transformations in gender stereotypes. She ultimately crafted an identity that conflated the image of the "modern woman" - independent and intrepid - with that of a "real woman" - nurturing and domestic - and in so doing, she generated an empowering new role for French women: the "modern mother." This apparent conflict was just one of many in the pioneer's life: the explorer's love of solitude was counterbalanced by an equally strong need to be in the spotlight; the anarchist jettisoned rules but treated those closest to her in authoritarian ways; the wife never lived with her husband on a full-time basis; the bohemian remained attached to living a bourgeois life; the mother thought it an abomination to have children; the Orientalist adopted native customs; the traveller yearned to escape from and be a part of Western society; the yogi was civilized. This list reveals that Alexandra recast her identity in ways that served her purpose as a female explorer in a man's world - as a woman in quest of independence and fame. Alexandra's life is a compelling story about a woman who dared to embrace career over family - without ever fully relinquishing her role as wife and mother - when it was not the norm to do so. Even though authentic freedom proved to be an elusive goal, Alexandra never gave up trying to live without submitting to anyone or anything

From Christian militants to republican renovators: The third ralliement of Catholics in postwar France, 1944--1965 by Arthur Plaza ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This thesis examines the relationship between religion and political culture in France from the interwar period through the 1960s. It explores why leaders or militants from interwar Catholic Action associations committed to establishing a "Christian social order" embraced the Republic at the Liberation and founded a new political party to rally Catholics to Republican institutions, policies, and values. Their innovation, the Mouvement Republicain Populaire, a French incarnation of a Christian Democratic party, bore characteristics of the religious beliefs and practices that its members had adopted in their Catholic social activism. Its structures, policies, and rhetoric were steeped in Catholic social doctrine and personalist philosophy. In the postwar decades it constituted a means for Catholics to shape the Republic through democratic politics, with important consequences both for Catholic political cultures and the secular Republic
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
This dissertation examines the role of ideas and discourse as forces of resistance and change in French health policy making. Drawing upon the leading medical press as well as the popular media, official documents and the contributions of social policy experts to public debates, this research focuses on four major reform episodes and other more gradual trends during the 1990s and 2000s, showing how broad paradigmatic notions such as solidarity, the liberal practice of medicine and the hospital as a public service, however well-anchored in the ideological and cultural repertoire, faced challenges from a new widely-held economic approach to health in the age of austerity. Unlike earlier welfare state scholarship that often presented France as immobile and unwilling to change, the case of health policy reform demonstrates how widely cherished deep core notions like solidarity have been stretched to adapt to a new policy environment. 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. Reform trends included greater state involvement over the financing and management of care, the extension of health coverage to the poorest, a new gatekeeper role for physicians, an increased role for the market in insurance and provision, a reduction in the share financed by public insurance and increased user charges for patients
