A great reference book especially if you're working on a review of another book on the era Michael Burns' uick and easy chronicle of the epoch will give you a firm basis for seeking what it is that really made the French the people they are today He embeds the documents throughout his narrative a welcome freedom from checking appendices or searching the internet for reprints Combines relevant documents and a narrative description of the origins events and impact of the Dreyfus Affair The documents are usually kept short and the explanatory sections between are informative This book is critical for an understanding Anti Semitism and the concept of otherness The Dreyfus affair was a political issue that divided the French at the turn of the 20th century and its lessons or justifications for prejudice still ring loudly across the subseuent decades The unapologetic hatred reflected in the archival documents that Burns provides can still be found in various neo facist white nationalist and racist websites and literature available today After a century nay centuries we as a species still have not been able to find a way to weave the lofty goals of liberty euality and fraternity into the fabric of human culture Very academic and intellectual Interesting from a Historical point of view It amazes me how men could so strongly support the side against Dreyfus even after it became evident that there had been a cover up and falsification of documents to support the wrong doing Some even praised the perpetrators of the false documents as patriotic The used of documents and written accounts made it an interesting read Extremely fascinatingespecially with all of the included primary sources I read this for a class on the long nineteenth century and found it completely enjoyable I'd known the major points about the Dreyfus Affair and read J'Accuse but this short book taught me a lot about the atmosphere surrounding this issueThe documents help present the Dreyfus Affair in an easily understandable way while bringing insight into the overarching themes of anti Semitism and nationalism that were so prevalent during the turn of the nineteenth century and of course into the twentiethI'd definitely recommend this book to people who might find standard history texts dry I read this for class and I found it a comprehensive description of the events It was definitely biased towards the Dreyfusards which I would find hard not to do The only complaint I have is that from the description I didn't realize until I was told in class that some people still claim Dreyfus was guilty However I liked the many primary sources referenced A great mix of primary and secondary sources short but informative Very concise Very well written A perfect mix of historical documents and a modern interpretation of one of the most scandalous moments in French military history Very descriptive details It helps to really understand what truly happened
