9780674047037: Stuff and Money in the Time of the French Revolution
Críticas:

Brilliant What [Spang] proposes is nothing less than a new conceptualization of the revolution Spang s innovation is to shift attention from these higher-flown interpretive constructions to the basic notion of "practice." What people thought, she reasons, came about as an inevitable response to what they "did" or, more specifically, to the limitations placed on what they "could" do by the material medium through which they transacted business, i.e., money Spang s book is distinguished not only by its theoretical advances but also by fine writing and keen perception Spang s greatest contribution is her theoretical reorientation of revolutionary studies from causes to practices, from precursors to processes. She has provided historians and not just those of France or the French Revolution with a new set of lenses with which to view the past We study history because, in the hands of a gifted historian like Rebecca Spang, it reveals the true nature of the human predicament.--Arthur Goldhammer"Bookforum" (12/01/2014)"

Críticas:

Rebecca Spang notes that money is a social convention based on mutual trust. The French Revolutionaries had the misfortune of introducing their new paper currency, the assignats", into a world in which social relations and political loyalties had already been scrambled by the Revolution. In this enthralling and deeply researched book, Spangshows how this monetary experiment compounded insecurity, multiplied occasions for mistrust, and powerfully affected the revolution s course. She casts a brilliant new light on both the politics and the lived experience of the French Revolution.--William H. Sewell, Jr., author of "Logics of History: Social Theory and Social Transformation""

Descripción HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 163 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Rebecca L. Spang, who revolutionized our understanding of the restaurant, has written a new history of money. It uses one of the most infamous examples of monetary innovation, the assignats a currency initially defined by French revolutionaries as circulating land to demonstrate that money is as much a social and political mediator as it is an economic instrument. Following the assignats from creation to abandonment, Spang shows them to be subject to the same slippages between policies and practice, intentions and outcomes, as other human inventions. But Spang s book is also a new history of the French Revolution, one in which radicalization was driven by an ever-widening gap between political ideals and the realities of daily life. Money played a critical role in creating this gulf. Wed to the idea that liberty required economic deregulation as well as political freedom, revolutionary legislators extended the notion of free trade to include freedom of money. The consequences were disastrous. Backed neither by the weight of tradition nor by the state that issued them, the assignats could not be a functioning currency. Ever reluctant to interfere in the workings of the market, lawmakers thought changes to the material form of the assignats should suffice to enhance their credibility. Their hopes were disappointed, and the Revolution spiraled out of control. Stuff and Money in the Time of the French Revolution restores economics, in the broadest sense, to its rightful place at the heart of the Revolution and hence to that of modern politics.
