Poised between fin-de-siècle ambivalence about change and the brave new world of the 1920s, the early years of Third Republic represented a crossroads in the French experience of modernization. This volume surveys how the French engaged with these challenges in light of new developments in social and historical theory and historians’ efforts to use these tools in novel ways. By covering such topics as women’s rights, male honour codes, psychiatry, gastronomy, bohemianism, occultism, and the Dreyfus Affair, it reveals the deep impact that new ways of thinking about gender have had on historical perspectives of this exciting period.
