Bourgeois Nation Building and Civic Leadership
This book concludes by discussing the legacy of the Galles family and their kin in the areas of nation building and civic leadership. It shows how kinship contributed to French nation building in the nineteenth century and provided the glue binding a national bourgeoisie, and explains how the inward-outward character of provincial bourgeois ascendancy was replicated by the Galles and many other families not only in Vannes but also throughout France. It examines the role of professional accomplishment, civic leadership, and intellectual influence in the processes of national bourgeois class formation and bourgeois contributions to nation building. It also considers the movement for Breton autonomy and the Société polymathique du Morbihan’s (SPM) criticism of “Bretonisme”.
