The Margins of City Life

John M. Merriman

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the question of the “fearsome faubourgs,” when and how the physical margins of urban life came to be so suspect. The urban periphery, the leading edge of urbanization and the future of the city, challenged government officials, urban elites, and the police. If, during the Restoration, the uncertainty of the city outskirts seemed fearsome, during the July Monarchy and, above all, after the revolution of 1848, faubourg and banlieue took on a more concrete image, that of increasingly organized workers contending for power.

Keywords:   urban periphery, fauborgs, urban elites, July Monarchy, banlieue, workers
