The Statue of Liberty : a transatlantic story by Edward Berenson( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 670 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 )

12 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 478 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 )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 198 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 fa

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 2 WorldCat member libraries 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
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
Politics and the French peasantry : the debate continues by Edward Berenson( )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

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

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
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

This dissertation studies the reciprocal influence of medical and literary diagnostics regarding the emergence and development of nervous diseases in the second half of the nineteenth century. Whereas the influence of reading medical treatises on the writings of Flaubert, Baudelaire, the brothers Goncourt, Michelet, Zola or Huysmans has been studied at length, critics have hardly examined its counterpart: the use by the medical world of such writers and their writings to achieve clinical and political objectives. Examining the nature of the motives that lie behind the production of such novels and comparing them to the medical and social concerns of the time leads one to believe that these writers were working towards the same goal than doctors and politicians of the time: the eradication of nervous diseases via their grotesque representations
