      If Haussmann could have grovelled at his own feet, I do believe he would have. A distinctly unlikeable man. His memoirs and letters bespeak a man whose arrogance is so great he feels no need to hide it. "In the twenty-two years that I have been in departmental administration," he wrote, "I have never seen a prefect greeted as I came to be greeted" Jordan writes of him, "Haussmann might inspire respect, but he rarely engendered friendshipHe had no instinct for personal affection; he generated no [...]

      This was one of the resources for my research into the Paris Commune, 1871. Not only does this book provide wonderful information about the layout of Paris as we know it today, the author helped me understand the social stucture of the time. In addition, plans and actions detailed by the author dovetailed nicely with the subsequent rationale of the Communards.By itself, this book is very informative; as background information for a researcher, Jordan's volumn is crucial.

      Time for yet another paper on Haussmannization. When will they end? Maybe when I stop going back to architecture school. Anyway, this is a solid overview of Baron Haussmann's role in the overhaul of Paris c. 1850-1870. Insufficient attention is paid to the sewers, but I guess a girl can't have it all.
