Auteur: Ranciere, Jacques
Titel: Proletarian nights
Sub titel: The workers' dream in Nineteenth-Century France
'Proletarian Nights', previously published in English as 'Nights of Labor' and one of Rancière’s most important works, dramatically reinterprets the Revolution of 1830, contending that workers were not rebelling against specific hardships and conditions but against the unyielding predetermination of their lives. Through a study of worker-run newspapers, letters, journals, and worker-poetry, Rancière reveals the contradictory and conflicting stories that challenge the coherence of these statements celebrating labor.
