9780199265619: The Culture of Power and the Power of Culture: Old Regime Europe 1660-1789

In this fascinating new account of Old Regime Europe, T.C.W. Blanning explores the cultural revolution which transformed eighteenth-century Europe. During this period the court culture exemplified by Louis XIV's Versailles was pushed from the center to the margins by the emergence of a new kind of space - the public sphere. The author shows how many of the world's most important cultural institutions developed in this space: the periodical, the newspaper, the novel, the lending library, the coffee house, the voluntary association, the journalist, and the critic.

About the Author:

T. C. W. Blanning is a Professor of Modern European History, University of Cambridge.

Review:


"Witty, conversational in tone, the book is also encyclopedic, ranging from Luther to Thomas Mann's Buddenbrooks, while exploring fascinating tangents on dietary nationalism and British xenophobia....This innovative work is highly recommended for educated readers and scholars alike."--CHOICE

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this fascinating new account of Old Regime Europe, T. C. W. Blanning explores the cultural revolution which transformed eighteenth-century Europe. During this period the court culture exemplified by Louis XIV s Versailles was pushed from the centre to the margins by the emergence of a new kind of space - the public sphere. The author shows how many of the world s most important cultural institutions developed in this space: the periodical, the newspaper, the novel, the lending library, the coffee house, the voluntary association, the journalist, and the critic. It was here that public opinion staked its claim to be the ultimate arbiter of culture and politics. For the established order this new force was to prove both a challenge and an opportunity and the author s comparative study of power and culture shows how regimes sought to keep their balance as the ground moved beneath their feet. In the process he explains, among other things, why Britain won the Second Hundred Years War against France, how Prussia rose to become the dominant power in German-speaking Europe, and why the French monarchy collapsed.
