Summary
"Revolutionary Thought after the Paris Commune, 1871-1885 provides the first comprehensive account of French revolutionary thought in the years after the defeat of the 1871 Paris Commune, France's last nineteenth-century revolution. Scholars have traditionally dismissed this period as of little importance: an era of stagnation, defeatism, and disarray. This book pieces together the nature and content of French revolutionary thought from the crushing of the Commune in 1871 to the re-emergence of socialism as a meaningful electoral force in the mid-1880s. It historicises revolutionary thought from domestic and international perspectives, and places it in the context of broader revolutionary discourses. In doing so, I show that -- contrary to prevailing assumptions -- this was a creative period, in which activists drew upon fresh ideas encountered in exile during the 1870s to rebuild a united and politically viable revolutionary movement upon their return to France in 1880. I further suggest that the relative success of these efforts has significant implications for the ways in which we understand both the founding years of the Third Republic and the nature of the modern revolutionary tradition"--
