Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the flood of books in European social history, this superb synthesis will surely stand out. It is based on specialized studies of social changes across early modern Europe (but primarily in France) that led to the Industrial and the French revolutions. Structured around communitiesvillages, towns, and citiesit offers a mine of fresh information about elites, the middle classes, the poor, demographic trends, marriage patterns, education, crime, social rebellions, and sexuality. As in late medieval, so in early modern Western Europe, the nuclear family of four or five people was the general norm. College teachers, students, anyone interested in the social life of the modern West will appreciate this beautifully written, soundly researched, and highly knowledgeable book. Bennett D.
