The Dreyfus Affair: Honour and Politics in the Belle Epoque

Overview

The Dreyfus Affair, or simply L'Affaire, was the defining event in French life between the disasters of the Franco-Prussian War and the First World War. After decades of prosperity and growth following the Prussian invasion, the destruction of the Paris Commune and the seemingly successful creation of the Third Republic, the Affair cruelly exposed the bitter divisions within French society.

Overview

The Dreyfus Affair, or simply L'Affaire, was the defining event in French life between the disasters of the Franco-Prussian War and the First World War. After decades of prosperity and growth following the Prussian invasion, the destruction of the Paris Commune and the seemingly successful creation of the Third Republic, the Affair cruelly exposed the bitter divisions within French society. The Affair tore apart the French army, forced ministers to resign, created quite new political groupings, led to an attempted coup and contributed to the paranoia that almost resulted in a catastrophic Anglo-French war in 1898.

The scale and complexity of the Affair have resulted in numerous very large books on the subject, but there is a desperate need among students of Belle Epoque France for a much shorter work that allows the Affair much more space than in the survey textbooks (and therefore allows it to be comprehensible), while being crisp enough to be read realistically during term. Dr Johnson's new book admirably fills this gap.

Teaching History
Johnson has written a book that incorporates the best of Affair scholarship,developing thoughtful analyses of the individuals and the large issues...
Booknews
The Dreyfus Affair of 1894 is viewed as the defining event in French life between the Franco-Prussian War and World War I. In an account with as many plot twists as a spy thriller<-->which it is, Johnson (history, Northern Illinois U.) discloses how the trial of a French army officer for treason exposed the anti-Semitism and societal fractures in the seemingly successful French Third Republic, and led to political repercussions reflected in the Vichy regime and even today. Includes a chronology of events from 1894-1906. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
