The Great Cat Massacre: And Other Episodes in French Cultural History - DARNTON, Robert

Penguin, 2001, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

From the cover: “To try to enter the minds of ordinary people in eighteenth-century France and discover 'the mental world of the unenlightened during the Enlightenment', Robert Darnton's engrossing, unusual history analyses a rich variety of material, including the grim, earthy peasant sources of folk tales such as Little Red Riding Hood; a curious description of a city; and a policeman's secret dossier. His innovative ethnographic study shows us not just what people thought in the past, but how differently they viewed the world from us.”
