The hollow years : France in the 1930s by Eugen Weber( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 1,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Caught between the memory of a brutal war won at frightful cost and fear of another cataclysm, France in the 1930s suffered a failure of nerve. "The common sight of wheelchairs, crutches, empty sleeves dangling loosely or tucked into a jacket, had left the French with their fill of combat." Except against each other. Brilliantly chronicled here by a master historian, the 1930s could neither solve insoluble problems nor escape from them. It was not all bad, at least not at first. The First World War had paved the way for millions, men and women alike, out of farm or domestic service into more satisfying employment; more services now catered to middle- and working-class folk. There were fewer servants but more labor-saving devices; social legislation, modern conveniences, greater leisure, made life a little better

The life of a simple man by Émile Guillaumin( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In order to 'show the gents of Moulins, of Paris and elsewhere, just what a sharecropper's life is like, ' Emile Guillaumin, under the guise of fiction, wrote this story of 'Tiennon, ' a French peasant born fifty years before him in 1823. A peasant himself, Guillaumin was unique in that, after a few years of schooling, he continued to work his small farm in central France to the end of his life, reserving nights for study and writing. Guillaumin felt that the French peasant had been misrepresented in contemporary literature--either romanticized as in George Sand or depicted as a dumb victim of the forces of nature as in Zola--and wanted to correct the picture. The result is a moving first-person story that can be read as a fictional account, as well as the best kind of material for historians seeking to understand how nineteenth-century French peasants really lived."--Publisher's Web site

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this rich and colourful survey of European history since 1715, trends, processes, events and institutions are related directly to the conditions of everyday life. The author does not treat history merely as a succession of reigns; instead he searches for more pervasive signs of change in physical and social conditions and in the intellectual climate. The result is a survey text of unusual depth and readability, ideally suited to courses in modern European history and Western civilization." [Back cover]
