Harsin shows how Louis-Philippes initial image as the peoples king faded as the king moved away from liberals to conservatives, that is, in the more common terminology, from the party of movement to that of resistance.
Harsins description of the fighting on the barricades, especially that of June 1848, and of the élan of the garde mobile charging with bayonets, reminds the reader of the savagery of the encounters.
Harsins attempt to describe these differences is rendered difficult by the fluidity of membership and by the tendency over the decade for socialist, communist, and republican groups to converge.
