The World of the Paris Cafe: Sociability Among the French Working Class, 1789-1914 by W. Scott Haine

This study examines the working-class cafe and what it reveals about urban life in 19th-century France. It argues that cafe life was the product not just of a small elite of intellectuals and artists, but was also formed by a diverse and changing working population. Cafe life is analyzed in relation to work, family life, leisure, gender roles, and political activity, and the author offers a reinterpretation of the social history of the Parisian working classes.

The World of the Paris Cafe Reviews


"Haine investigates a topic which is crucial in its own right and which ties together many of the central issues which historians have been debating in recent years. He uses neighborhood cafis as a privileged position from which to observe not only drinking and masculine play but also class formation, political mobilization, prostitution, job hunting, and many other activities that were important components of popular culture. He makes noteworthy contributions to many of the debates because he can bring so much new information and so many new perspectives to bear."--Lenard Berlanstein, University of Virginia
