Jarvis Book Cover

Politics in the Marketplace: Work, Gender, and Citizenship in Revolutionary France integrates politics, economics, and gender to ask how Parisian market women invented notions of citizenship through everyday trade during the French Revolution. This book analyzes how marketplace actors shaped nascent democracy and capitalism and, in doing so, challenges the interpretation that revolutionary citizenship was inherently masculine from the outset.
