Overview

Prepared at the Center for Research on Modern European Civilization of the Sorbonne, each of the studies in this collection provides an account of the size and structure of the population of a single neighborhood in or near Paris during a specific 2- to 5-year period in the 17th or 18th century.

This research has delineated in new detail the structure of the social hierarchy, the range of choice of marriage partners and limitations of social mobility during the ancient regime.
