The Late Nineteenth Century as a “Place of Memory” of French Political Culture
In the early 1890s, immediately after the Centennial of the French Revolution and the International Expo in Paris, French culture and political society were in a deep crisis. Before the Dreyfus Affair, the event with so profound an impact on public opinion, political scandals, new forms of trade-union organization and socialist movements, and the end of the “orderly” society were to usher in a new age and herald the social anxiety – the “fièvre française” – that marked the entire history of the Third Republic until its final collapse in June 1940.
