This book traces the profound transformation of the City of Light during Napolon III's Second Empire, as he and Georges Haussmann completely rebuilt Paris in less than two decades. Their breathtaking and brutal achievement was mirrored by dramatic social, cultural, and political changes, all brought to life through McAuliffe's evocative narrative.
