Reviews

"It is a thorough, intricate and estimable book."Philip Hensher, Daily Telegraph "This is a wondrous book, either to be read at home with a decent map, or carried about sur place through areas no tourists bother with." Adam Thorpe, Guardian "Hazan wants to rescue individual moments from general forgetting and key sites from the bland homogenisation of international city development; he is also a passionate left-wing historian seeking to rescue the truth of Paris's revolutionary past from the historiographical equivalent of Haussmannisation the blasting through and laying waste to the lives and memories of the unimportant, the marginalised, the losers of the last two centuries." Julian Barnes, London Review of Books "Not just a history book, but a guide to what makes Paris the melting pot it is today - A wholly worthwhile read." French Magazine
