Abstract

This article examines the relationship between war, revolution, and citizenship during the Paris Commune of 1871. The event marked a moment in which French radicals began to rethink the nation’s revolutionary heritage as they proposed alternative models for a reconstituted republican government and society. War and military conflict were important factors in these ideological considerations, especially as radical republicans grappled with concepts of offensive and defensive revolutionary strategies. As this article suggests, these arguments came to inform novel ideas regarding republican citizenship and state institutions, demonstrating that the civil war of 1871 was conceptualized as a turning point in France’s revolutionary tradition in the nineteenth century.
