About this book

Saint-Simonians were a group of young engineers and doctors who proposed original solutions to the social and banking crises of the early nineteenth century. Through an examination of the lives, ideals and activities of these men and women, the book analyses the influence of the Saint-Simonians on nineteenth-century French society.

Reviews

“This monograph is engagingly written, with a good eye for narrative detail, which should make this study accessible to a pretty wide audience. … This is a well-written and interesting book, which will prove useful to students of nineteenth-century proto-socialism and utopian radicalism.” (Ambrogio A. Caiani, History - Journal of the Historical Association, December, 2015)


"One cannot fault the range of [Pilbeam's] research: not only the Arsenal (where the archives of Saint-Simon and Prosper Enfantin run into 47 volumes, plus the less often exploited Fonds d'Eichthal), but the Archives d'Outre-Mer too. The originality of the book is furthered by her use of primary printed sources by such authors as the hostile Edward Hancock, who was appalled by the Saint-Simonians' 'horrid doings' (91). What Pilbeam shows in her clear, occasionally mischievous, wideranging account is that where the Saint-Simonians succeeded, it was through compromise and shrewd lobbying of governmental and financial institutions. Much of

the history of the Saint-Simonians is a list of frustrated dreams and errors. It is often a hard fate to be a precursor." - Maura Hametz, Old Dominion University, USA
