"Good social and cultural historians are both fact-bound and original at once, so the requirements for being either keep rising ... none succeeds more impressively in both fields than Alain Corbin. Corbin's thirteen chapters ... make a great little book not least because of their very diversity." Journal of Social History
"Corbin is one of France's best historians of the nineteenth century; he is indisputably the most adventuresome. For readers interested in a sampling of one of France's most daring historians, this book is a good place to start." Choice
