    Paris The Secret History Kindle ✓ Paris The ePUB Õ PDF/EPUB crypto world.pro paris pdf, secret free, history ebok, Paris The kindle, Paris The Secret History eBookI was disappointed by this one There are a lot of entertaining historical anecdotes in here but somehow as a whole it doesn't uite hang togetherPart of the problem is that it wants to be than just a factual history Hussey says in the prologue that he is modelling the project on Peter Ackroyd's wonderful London The Biography but that sets the bar pretty high He is decent when he sticks to the facts but when he starts trying to be metaphysical he just doesn't have Ackroyd's control and ends up drawing rather silly and pseudo profound conclusions like The death of Princess Diana could only have happened here she is only the latest and most famous example of those who have been fatal

    Paris The Secret History Kindle ✓ Paris The ePUB Õ PDF/EPUB crypto world.pro paris pdf, secret free, history ebok, Paris The kindle, Paris The Secret History eBookIf you love Paris as the City of Light this book might change your opinion The author digs deep into the history of the people and neighborhoods and it is not a pretty picture He covers the city from pre Roman times until the present day and because he has to cram a lot of history into 433 pages some events the Revolution Napoleonetc are given short shrift But this is a secret historya social history and not your typical history book so it is a forgivable sin A familiarity with the city of Paris although not a reuirement helps the reader understand and visualize how the city and the attitudes of Parisians evolved An excellent book for the lover of everything Parisian

    Paris The Secret History Kindle ✓ Paris The ePUB Õ PDF/EPUB crypto world.pro paris pdf, secret free, history ebok, Paris The kindle, Paris The Secret History eBookI enjoyed this book uite a bit This is an history of Paris from Roman times to the present focusing on the working classes the revolutionary the thieves the homeless the prostitutes the students the literary underground and other people on the margins So often history is told from the perspectives of the royalty the nobles and the borgeousie and it's refreshing whenever one gets to read about the lives of everyday people The sheer scope of the time period covered means

    Paris The Secret History Kindle ✓ Paris The ePUB Õ PDF/EPUB crypto world.pro paris pdf, secret free, history ebok, Paris The kindle, Paris The Secret History eBookTwo out of five stars This was engaging but only fitfully so; the best chapters come at the beginning and then again towards the end But this is nothing spectacular Hussey commits errors in his writing for example alleging that Madame de Maintenon collaborated on a pornographic booklet which is laughable and barely acknowledges how women have lived in Paris unless it is to blame them for things ie Catherine de Medici or focus on prostitution In fact prostitution seems to be a major fixation for him and he constantly refers to these women as whores Oh and while he takes great pains to explain the reasons why eighteenth and nineteenth century revolutions were spurred by abysmal conditions affecting the poorest classes he refuses to acknowledge that this is the same catalyst that motivates the Black Arab and immigrant classes in the banlieues who have rebelled recently A disappointing read
