Abstract
The essay is a detailed review of the book of G. Murray-Miller “The Cult of the Modern. Trans-Mediterranean France and the Construction of French Modernity”. This book is rethinking the traditional perception of the Algerian question for France and the essence of French republicanism of the 19th century, presenting a fresh and controversial view at the process of the formation of French state in the epoch of modernity and its continuity. The essay discusses the main ideas of the book, as well as the theme of the modern era and its interpretations and adaptation of the term “modernity” in Russian.
