(p.11) 1 Regime change on the streets of Paris
British Writers and Paris 1830–1875

Elisabeth Jay

Oxford University Press

The first chapter provides a brief historical guide to the major changes affecting Paris between the years of 1814 and 1875. This chronologically structured background information will help readers make sense of the later references to political events, systems, and allegiances which occur throughout this historically grounded book. It introduces two themes to which the book will return: the political power of the press, and its consequent censorship; and the socioeconomic implications of the swiftly changing physical contours of the city. An account of the repeated street warfare accompanying the regime changes of 1830, 1848, and 1851, the siege of 1870–71, and the subsequent quashing of the Commune helps to explain Britain’s growing sense of both fundamental constitutional and temperamental difference from its nearest neighbour.
