Maurice Agulhon. The Republica


Maurice Agulhon. The Republican Experiment, 1848-1852.
London and New York: Cambridge University Press. 1983.Pp195.

This books main objective was to describe how France was in the process of becoming a
democratic Republic. The book gave a full evolution and fulfillment that France made by
the first four years of its first trial run at becoming a democratic Republic. The book
gave in detail from start to finish how France finally prevailed during the 18707's. The
Republic was reborn when the Second Empire had made itself impossible: too aggressive for
the alarmed Europe of the time and too authoritarian for an awakened society.


The Second Republic was not completely credited simply to the combination of government
which held power during those four years. The powers were attributable to the Republic
that tried to succeed from February to June 1848 and then survive from June 1848 to
January 1849, and were above all due to the ideal Republic defined and desired between
1949 and 1851 by the only true republicans of all the time, those who were in opposition.

The textbook as compared to the book chosen was alike in many aspects. Not only did the
two books contain a lot of information but also the book compared very similarly with the
classroom notes. Many of the ideas that were briefly discussed in class were given in much

The similar situations in the two countries meant that the French Revolution had real relevance for Irish society, as it provided an example of how to overthrow a tyrannical regime and helped break the sectarian deadlock which had disabled the reform movement of the 1780’s, as Presbyterians were encouraged by the actions of the French Catholics to embrace the Catholics of Ireland.

    Summary of the French Revolution France was an absolute monarchy. Louis XIV (1643 – 1715) was the envy of all other rulers in Europe. During his reign he had centralized the government and had encouraged trade and manufacture. His undoing was the long list of over ambitious wars that he had participated in. His successors Louis XV (1715 – 74) and Louis XVI (1774 – 93) also participated in lengthy and costly conflicts. France had suffered defeat in the Seven Years War against Britain (1756 – 63).
