Kennedy (history, George Washington University) discusses a vast array of cultural activities, from painting, music, fiction, theater, and festivals, to philosophy, science, education, and religion. He traces the elements of continuity and change in both the popular and elite cultures from the Old Regime to the Restoration. Although the task may be too ambitious for a one volume treatment, Kennedy has done quite well in the attempt. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
