Realms of Memory: The Construction of the French Past: v. 1 free pdf How do nations remember their past? How do certain historical figures, events and objects become the common stock of memory that is recognizable as a cultural heritage? How do human societies leave their mark on the world so they are not forgotten? This is a collection of work by leading French intellectuals exploring the statutes, cathedrals, palaces, rituals, legends and events of history that form the architecture of the French collective consciousness. The book juxtaposes the greatest accomplishments of France's history with aspects of its cultural identity, from the grand palace of Versailles to the Tour de France. In this, the first of three volumes, the contributors reflect on the political, religious and geohistorical oppositions that structure France's cultural memory.
