Tensions between Paris and the provinces have played a significant role in French history. This book examines the effect of the French Revolution in the provinces, on the tensions between provincial interests and those of paris, and the mediations of different political cultures, which ensured that provincial France made a distinctive contribution to the history of the Revolutionary years.
