Born and raised near downtown Chicago, I became fascinated with French history as a student at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, when I learned about all of the revolutionary upheavals in the country’s past. I’ve since become an historian of Old Regime France and the Revolution.

Stephen Miller’s latest book is entitled The Transition to Capitalism in Modern France .
