Foreign Citizens in the Old Regime and After
Although the numbers of immigrants seeking naturalization in pre-revolutionary France were insignificant, the process of becoming ‘naturalized foreigners’ – they never attained the full legal status of French ‘naturals’ – offers a unique perspective on the policies and practices of citizenship and nationality. Sahlins’ social, political and legal history of early immigration explores these processes of naturalization before and after the 1789 Revolution.
Louis Philippe D'Orléans 1773–1850
Through revolution, the army, exile and a spell as a tutor in Reichenau, and finally as King of France, Louis Philippe led an extraordinary life, yet is one of the less well-known monarchs of Europe. Ann Allestree brings ‘an outrageous attraction for the man’ and a novelist’s flair to this biography of Louis Philippe from the age of 19, commanding his Dragoons, to his reign as a peaceful and compassionate king between 1830 and his abdication in 1848.
