Daniel Roche begins with a map of space and time, depicting France as a mosaic of overlapping geographical units, with people and goods traversing it to the rhythms of everyday life. He fills this frame with the patterns of rural life, urban culture, and government institutions.

Here as never before we see the 18th-century French culture of appearances: the organization of social life, the diffusion of ideas, the accoutrements of ordinary people in the folkways of ordinary living - their food and clothing, living quarters, reading material. Roche shows us the 18th-century France of the peasant, the merchant, the noble, the King, from Paris to the provinces, from the public space to the private home.
