Dreyfus Summary


Dreyfus: A Family Affair, 1789-1945 by Michael Burns

This volume is a detailed history of the Dreyfus family and through them France's Jewish community, which spans six generations, from the French Revolution to World War II. At the centre of the book is the Dreyfus Affair of the 1890s, one of the most chilling examples of persecution, and one of the most complex and controversial political and cultural events of the 20th century - a case which split the French nation and revealed the true extent of 19th-century anti-Semitism. "Dreyfus" takes the reader through two world wars, and follows the Dreyfus family into the holocaust which their own affair so darkly foreshadowed. Michael Burns has also written "Rural Society and French Politics: Boulangism and the Dreyfus Affair".
