The Advent of Modern Capitalism in France, 1770–1840

This chapter examines the impact of the French Revolution and the recession on property ownership rights in France. It suggests that throughout the Revolution and the regime of the French Empire, small property and coal mine owners fought a successful rearguard action against the encroachment of the State and monopoly capitalism. They were aided by the political and administrative revolution which handed effective power into the hand of town and village sites and by the persistence of proto-industrialized forms of production.

Keywords:   French Revolution, property ownership, France, French Empire, monopoly capitalism
