Beschreibung

"Desan's deeply researched book tracks the debates about marriage, divorce, parenthood and inheritance in Revolutionary France. Through absorbing, well-told tales of people caught up in a redefinition of identities, Desan brilliantly demonstrates that the "social revolution" of the 1790s largely took place in the realm of family relations. This book is a crucial intervention in the scholarship of the French Revolution."--Sarah Maza, author of "The Myth of the French Bourgeoisie: An Essay on the Social Imaginary"In "The Family on Trial in Revolutionary France, Suzanne Desan brings together evidence of the lively struggles among lawmakers, judges, and ordinary women and men to remake family relations during the French Revolution. Marriage, divorce, inheritance, unwed mothers and their children - the Revolution redefined them all. Desan restores the optimism of a revolution which, even while foundering in the Terror and conservative backlash, bequeathed to the 19th century alternative ways of imagining how families might live together in equality and love. A riveting read."--Natalie Zemon Davis, author of "The Gift in Sixteenth Century France
