This theme compares the social and economic transformations of French and American societies in the late 19th – early 20th centuries. In France, the First Republic (1792-1804) and the Second Republic (1848-1852) were both replaced by imperialist and authoritarian regimes. However, following the collapse of the Second Empire (under Louis Napoleon), the Third Republic (1870-1914) survived for decades and constructed a nation around the republic ideal. The theme concludes with a study the development of French and American imperialism.
