Louis Blanc was a French historian, politician and utopian socialist. The February Revolution of 1848 established the "right to work"; a member of the constituent assembly, Blanc called for state-funded worker co-operatives, or "social workshops." Later, he fled to Belgium and London; he remained in exile until 1870, publishing a number of historical accounts of 1848.
