This brilliant work studies the notion of modernity as it's been defined at the end of the XIXth century, especially through the analyse of the links between the visual culture and several main social debates of the time such as sexuallity, urban crowd, riots and social control mechanisms, the Republic and the Church, nationalism and militarism.
First translation in French of Richard Thomson's The Troubled Republic, Visual Culture and Social Debate in France, 1889-1900 (Yale University Press, 2005).
