Proletarian Nights, one of Rancière'¬"s most significant 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. In this new edition, Rancière has written a new preface, revisiting the work twenty years since its first publication in French.
