Bureaucrats and Bourgeois Society : Office Politics and Individual Credit in France 1789-1848 Hardback

Part of the War, Culture and Society, 1750-1850 series

Description

Between 1789 and 1848, clerks modified their occupational practices, responding to political scrutiny and state-administration reforms.

Ralph Kingston examines the lives and influence of bureaucrats inside and outside the office as they helped define nineteenth-century bourgeois social capital, ideals of emulation, honour, and masculinity.
