Thomas Dodman is writing a microhistory of a young soldier and his adoptive family in the age of the French Revolution (1790s–1820s). His study draws on a unique collection of letters and diaries to explore the diffusion of Enlightenment ideas, the impact of war, and a family’s ­emotional life through an era of unprecedented social and political transformation.
