Description - Private Lives and Public Affairs by Sarah C. Maza

From 1770 to 1789 a succession of highly publicized cases rivited the attention of the French public. This book argues that the reporting of these private scandals had a decisive effect on the way in which the French public came to understand public issues in the years before the Revolution. The book was the winner of the Society for French Historical Studies' David Pinckney Prize.
