Description

John Merriman, who received his Ph.D. at the University of Michigan, teaches French and Modern European history. His books include The Agony of the Republic: The Repression of the Left in Revolutionary France, 1848-1851 (1978); The Red City: Limoges and the French Nineteenth Century (1985); The Margins of City Life: Explorations on the French Urban Frontier (1991); A History of Modern Europe since the Renaissance, 2 vols. (1996 and second edition 2002); and The Stones of Balazuc: A French Village in Time (2002), available in French as Mêmoires de pierres: Balazuc, village ardechois (Paris, 2005). His edited books include 1830 in France (1975); Consciousness and Class Experience in Nineteenth-Century Europe (1979); French Cities in the Nineteenth Century (1981); For Want of a Horse: Chance and Humor in History (1985); and Edo and Paris: Urban Life and the State in Early Modern Europe (with James McClain and Ugawa Kaoru, 1994).

He has recently completed Police Stories: Making the French State, 1815-1851 (Oxford UP, 2006) and co-edited (and contributed to), with Jay Winter: The Encyclopedia of Europe, 1789-1914 and The Encyclopedia of Europe, 1914-2006, (each 5 volumes, Charles Scribner's Sons, 2006). His entries in the latter include "The French Suburban Riots, 2005" and "The Rolling Stones."

Dynamite Club: How A Café Bombing Ignited the Age of Modern Terror was published by Houghton-Mifflin in 2009, by JR Books in London, and in French translation by Tallandier as Dynamite Club: L’Invention du Terrorisme à Paris. Two of his courses are available on line through Yale—France since 1871 and Europe, 1648-1945.
