Confronting Modernity in Fin-de-Siècle France: Bodies, Minds and Gender (Genders and Sexualities in History)
A reassessment of the Third Republic as the first long-term successful French experiment with a democratic republic. Born of violent revolution against Church, monarchy, and aristocracy, it was fraught with contradictions between the universalism of human rights and the practical need to deny certain categories of people the rights of citizenship.
