Constructing Paris in the Age of Revolution

Constructing Paris in the Age of Revolution

by Allan Potofsky (Author)

Synopsis

Examining the social and political history of workers and entrepreneurs engaged in constructing the French capital from 1763-1815, this book argues that Paris construction was a core sector in which 'archaic' and 'innovative' practices were symbiotically used by guilds, the state, and enterprises to launch the commercial revolution in France.
