This groundbreaking study examines complex notions of paternity and fatherhood in modern France through the lens of contested paternity. Drawing from archival judicial records on paternity suits, paternity denials, deprivation of paternity, and adoption, from the end of the eighteenth century through the twentieth, Rachel G. Fuchs reveals how paternity was defined and how it functioned in the culture and experiences of individual men and women. She addresses the competing definitions of paternity and of families, how public policy toward paternity and the family shifted, and what individuals did to facilitate their personal and familial ideals and goals. Issues of paternity and the family have broad implications for an understanding of how private acts were governed by laws of the state. Focusing on paternity as a category of family history, Contested Paternity emphasizes the importance of fatherhood, the family, and the law within the greater context of changing attitudes toward parental responsibility.

This study of tangible and intangible cultural heritage explains the significance of nobles' conservationist traditions for public engagement with the history of France. During the French Revolution nobles' property was seized, destroyed, or sold off by the nation. State intervention during the nineteenth century meant historic monuments became protected under law in the public interest. The Journées du Patrimoine, created in 1984 by the French Ministry for Culture, became a Europe-wide calendar event in 1991. Each year millions of French and international visitors enter residences and museums to admire France's aristocratic cultural heritage. Drawing on archival evidence from across the country, the book presents a compelling account of power, interest and emotion in family dynamics and nobles' relations with rural and urban communities.

In the period between 1775 and 1830 the transatlantic world experienced more or less constant war, touching not only every European country but also North and South America and the Caribbean Islands. The Wars of Revolution and Liberation, inspired by revolutionary or national ideologies, were increasingly fought by conscripted troops and militias alongside professional armies. The conduct of warfare was transformed, as mass armies were deployed by both revolutionary and conservative regimes, deeply affecting the political, social and gender order of the societies involved. Not only soldiers but also civilians—men and women alike—had to be mobilized on an unprecedented scale. This volume addresses the relationship between these wars, developing political and national identities and the changing gender regimes of Europe and the Americas. Looking at both free and slave societies, it explores military and civilian experiences of war and revolution, which shaped as well as reflected gender concepts and practices, in relation to class, ethnicity, race and religion.

This book, first published in 2005, is a major history of the dramatic and enduring changes in the daily lives of poor European women and men in the nineteenth century. Rachel G. Fuchs conveys the extraordinary difficulties facing the destitute from England to Russia, paying particular attention to the texture of women's everyday lives. She shows their strength as they attempted to structure a life and set of relationships within a social order, culture, community, and the law. Within a climate of calamities, the poor relied on their own resourcefulness and community connections where the boundaries between the private and public were indistinguishable, and on a system of exchange and reciprocity to help them fashion their culture of expediencies. This accessible synthesis introduces readers to conflicting interpretations of major historic developments and evaluates those interpretations. It will be essential reading for students of women's and gender studies, urban history and social and family history.
