The Ancien Regime and the French Revolution

by Alexis De Tocqueville Gerald Bevan

A powerful new translation of de Tocqueville's influential look at the origins of modern France In this penetrating study, Alexis de Tocqueville considers the French Revolution in the context of France's history. De Tocqueville worried that although the revolutionary spirit was still alive and well, liberty was no longer its primary objective. Just as the first Republic had fallen to Napoleon and the second had succumbed to his nephew Napoleon III, he feared that all future revolutions might experience the same fate, forever imperiling the development of democracy in France. Translated and with an introduction by Gerald Bevan.

Years of Grace

by Margaret Ayer Barnes

Years of Grace is the story of forty years and the changes wrought in two generations. Set in Chicago, the novel focuses on Jane Ward, daughter of a socially prominent family, who grows up in the repressed, pseudo-genteel society of the 1880s and 1890s. In her youth, indeed, throughout her life, Jane is a model of decorum. She refuses to marry a young artist whom she loves, because her parents disapprove. She accepts a family-approved husband because it is expected of her. She avoids an affair later in life because it might disgrace husband and family. Twenty years later, Jane's daughter Cicily encounters the identical decisions, but being a product of the war years, when marriage is fast and divorce easy, Cicily cares little for reputation, and lives her life accordingly. Through it all. Mrs. Barnes maintains a scrupulous neutrality, presenting each life as a reflection of the times, never presuming to judge or moralize. If a change in attitude is apparent between generations, it represents only a portion of the total evolvement of society during the forty year period; and Mrs. Barnes reflects in minute detail, changes in fashion, architecture, and interior decor as well as history and social conditions. <P><P> The author's first novel, Years of Grace won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1931.

If you see that red light, you move slowly over to the telephone and call the police." "Then what?" "Then the police come and catch him, and then they knock on your door and say, 'Lady, you shouldn't undress with the curtains up.'" "And what do I say?"
