Opis: Constructing Paris in the Age of Revolution - Allan Potofsky

The great myth of Parisian history is that the modern city was born with the Baron Haussmann's monumental reconstruction of the French capital in the second half of the nineteenth century. Constructing Paris in the Age of Revolution argues that Haussmannisation before Haussmann a hundred years earlier made Paris the capital of the eighteenth century. While the persistence of the black legend of uninterrupted revolutionary vandalism has led to meagre historical research into the construction of Paris in this period, Constructing Paris demonstrates that building represented a core sector of national urban, social, labour, and industrial policy. Allan Potofsky thus rehabilitates the vitality of Parisian building before and during the Revolution. And while architectural and urban historians often treat the history of construction through the careers and tastes of elite architects and urban planners - or through the structure and aesthetics of buildings, streets, and city designs - this book also examines the broader social, economic, and political history of workers and entrepreneurs engaged in constructing the French capital in the period, 1763-1815. Shortlisted for the Longman - History Today Book Prize 2010 'Far from destroying corporatism, the late eighteenth century and the Revolution inaugurated a pragmatic compromise between private enterprise and the state that enabled capitalism to flourish. Allan Potofsky's beautifully-researched study of the Paris building trades blends social, economic and cultural history and gives us a whole swathe of new insights into the city's political, social, and ideological transformation from the Old Regime to the nineteenth century.' - David Garrioch, Monash University, Australia 'Allan Potofsky's book will make an important contribution to the history of the French Revolution, the history of Paris and the history of labour. No one but he could have written this book, which is grounded in impressively extensive archival research, yet which wears its archival learning elegantly and lightly.' - Colin Jones, Queen Mary University of London, UK 'This impressive book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the complex story of construction in Paris during the late-Old Regime and the Revolution.' - K. Steven Vincent, North Carolina University, The European Legacy 'Constructing Paris is an authoritative history of the capital's building trades in a period of dramatic political change. Tracing how 'three dreams of commerce' - corporatism, statism, and liberalism - combined to shape Paris' construction industry, Potofsky powerfully illuminates the distinctive characteristics of French capitalism in the age of the French Revolution.' - Michael Kwass, The John Hopkins University, USA 'No one knows more about the Parisian construction industry in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century than Allan Potofsky. He has worked in and published on this field for some years now, and the range of archival research in this book attests to his deep knowledge.' - James R.
