Review Paris The Secret History

Paris The Secret History Free download Å 2 If Adam Gopnik's Paris to the Moon described daily life in contemporary Paris this book describes daily life in Paris throughout its history a history of the city from the point of view of the Parisians themselves Paris captures everyone's imaginations It's a backdrop for Proust's fictional pederast Robert Doisneau's photographic kiss and Edith Piaf's serenaded soldier lovers; a home as much to romance and love poems as t If you love Paris as the City of Light this book might change your opinion The author digs deep into the history of the people and neighborhoods and it is not a pretty picture He covers the city from pre Roman times until the present day and because he has to cram a lot of history into 433 pages some events the Revolution Napoleonetc are given short shrift But this is a secret historya social history and not your typical history book so it is a forgivable sin A familiarity with the city of Paris although not a reuirement helps the reader understand and visualize how the city and the attitudes of Parisians evolved An excellent book for the lover of everything Parisian

Paris The Secret History Free download Å 2 O prostitution and opium dens The many pieces of the city coexist each one as real as the next What's the conflicted identity of the city is visible everywhere between cobblestones in bars on the métroIn this lively and lucid volume Andrew Hussey brings to life the urchins and artists who've left their marks on the city filling in the gaps of a history that affected the disenfranchised as much as the nobility Paris The S I enjoyed this book uite a bit This is an history of Paris from Roman times to the present focusing on the working classes the revolutionary the thieves the homeless the prostitutes the students the literary underground and other people on the margins So often history is told from the perspectives of the royalty the nobles and the borgeousie and it s refreshing whenever one gets to read about the lives of everyday people The sheer scope of the time period covered means that Hussey often doesn t go into a lot of detail and there are many off handed comments that left me intrigued and wanting to learn about certain incidents or people Still as an overview this was very interesting portrait of a city and it s people constantly in flux It s fairly readable although sometimes I found Hussey s style to be somewhat lacking and there are some bizarre grammar constructs that left me shaking my head and rereading paragraphs over and over to figure out what he was trying to say Recommended for the casual student of history and those interested in Paris

Paris The Secret History Free download Å 2 Ecret History ranges across centuries movements and cultural and political beliefs from Napoleon's overcrowded cemeteries to Balzac's nocturnal flight from his debts For Hussey Paris is a city whose long and conflicted history continues to thrive and change The book's is a picaresue journey through royal palaces brothels and sidewalk cafés uncovering the rich exotic and often lurid history of the world's most beloved cit Two out of five stars This was engaging but only fitfully so the best chapters come at the beginning and then again towards the end But this is nothing spectacular Hussey commits errors in his writing for example alleging that Madame de Maintenon collaborated on a pornographic booklet which is laughable and barely acknowledges how women have lived in Paris unless it is to blame them for things ie Catherine de Medici or focus on prostitution In fact prostitution seems to be a major fixation for him and he constantly refers to these women as whores Oh and while he takes great pains to explain the reasons why eighteenth and nineteenth century revolutions were spurred by abysmal conditions affecting the poorest classes he refuses to acknowledge that this is the same catalyst that motivates the Black Arab and immigrant classes in the banlieues who have rebelled recently A disappointing read
