(p.231) Conclusion
Marianne in the Market

Lisa Tiersten

University of California Press

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the antagonism between the marketplace and the French Republic. It argues that from the founding of the first department store at mid-century, representatives and proponents of the modern market claimed that it benefited the individual middle-class consumer. It contends that while individualism of the market was its greatest attraction in a society increasingly organized around individuals, it was also its greatest defect in social and political terms.

Keywords:   marketplace, French Republic, department store, modern market, middle-class consumer, individualism, society
