Charles Seignobos

Seignobos, Charles (shärlˈ sānyōbōˈ) [key], 1854–1942, French historian. He taught at the Univ. of Paris and wrote many works on French and European history and civilization, some being contributions to the series edited by Ernest Lavisse and Alfred Rambaud. A number of these are widely used as textbooks in France. Seignobos's most outstanding book is his Histoire politique de l'Europe contemporaine (1897). Noted for his clear and unbiased narrative, Seignobos emphasized political history rather than social and economic change.
