520 2  "When not at war, armies are often used to control civil 
       disorders, especially in eras of rapid social change and 
       unrest. But in nineteenth century Europe, without the 
       technological advances of modern armies and police forces,
       an army's only advantages were discipline and organization
       --and in the face of popular opposition to the regime in 
       power, both could rapidly deteriorate. Such was the case 
       in France after the Napoleonic Wars, where a cumulative 
       recent history of failure weakened an already fragile 
       army's ability to keep the peace. After the February 1848 
       overthrow of the last king of France, the new republican 
       government proved remarkably resilient, retaining power 
       while pursuing moderate social policies despite the 
       concerted efforts of a variety of radical and socialist 
       groups. These efforts took numerous forms, ranging from 
       demonstrations to attempted coups to full-scale urban 
       combat, and culminated in the crisis of the June Days. At 
       stake was the future of French government and the social 
       and economic policy of France at large. In Controlling 
       Paris, Jonathan M. House offers us a study of revolution 
       from the viewpoint of the government rather than the 
       revolutionary. It is not focused on military tactics so 
       much as on the broader issues involved in controlling 
       civil disorders: relations between the government and its 
       military leaders, causes and social issues of public 
       disorder, political loyalty of troops in crisis, and 
       excessive use of force to control civil disorders. Yet 
       somehow, despite all these disadvantages, the French 
       police and armed forces prevented regime change far more 
       often than they failed to do so. Jonathan M. House is the 
       William A. Stofft Professor of Military History at the 
       U.S. Army Command & General Staff College. His previous 
       books include Combined Arms Warfare in the 20th Century; A
       Military History of the Cold War, 1944-1962; and, with 
       David M. Glantz, When Titans Clashed : How the Red Army 
       Stopped Hitler"--|cProvided by publisher
