Aiming to do for Paris what Peter Ackroyd has done for London, This book book tells the real history of Paris from the point of view of those whose version may contradict the official one. This Paris belongs not to the nobles, politicians and clergy who dominate our knowledge of the great events, but to the dangerous classes: insurrectionists, vagabonds, immigrants, sexual outsiders, criminals.
