History of Private Life, Vol. 4: From the Fires of Revolution to the Great War

The nineteenth century was the golden age of private life, a time when the tentative self-consciousness of the Renaissance and earlier eras took recognizable form, and the supreme individual, with a political, scientific, and above all existential value, emerged. Volume IV of this award-winning series chronicles this development from the tumult of the French Revolution to the outbreak of World War I–a century and a quarter of rapid, ungovernable change culminating in a conflict that, at a stroke, altered life in the Western world.
