An Illustrated HistoryBook - 2002
Paris stands as a centre of culture, a leader in fashion and art, and a focal point in the world, where ideas meet, clash, and are redefined. In this illustrated volume, the author spans Paris' history from its modest beginnings on a bit of island in the Seine to today's thriving metropolis. This book outlines the historical context of Paris' major battles waged over religion, the monarchy, and democracy; it covers the dramatic events of the French Revolution, the occupation of Paris in World War II, and the student revolts of May 1968. Additionally, it serves as a useful reference guide to Parisian landmarks.
