Glossary of Places
Adour. River flowing through the Landes. It permitted the transportation of goods from the Chalosse, the part of the département in which Bastiat lived, to the port of Bayonne, from which they could be exported. With time, sand deposits made navigation more and more difficult.
Armagnac. Region in southwest France, adjacent to the département of Landes. A major industry of Armagnac is grape growing and wine production, including the distilling of a brandy called “Armagnac.”
Chalosse. Part of the Landes département in which Bastiat had his home. It covers several counties.
Gironde. Département in the Aquitaine region in southwest France, immediately to the north of the département of Landes, on the Atlantic coast. The Gironde contains the port city of Bordeaux and is famous for its wines. Because a number of liberal-minded deputies were sent to Paris from this region during the French Revolution, they were given the name Girondins. (See also the entry for “Girondins” in the Glossary of Subjects and Terms.)
Landes. Département in the southwest of France, where Bastiat spent most of his life.
Mugron. A small town in the Landes overlooking the Adour River, where Bastiat lived from 1825 to 1845. At the time it was a significant commercial center, with a port on the Adour River and about two thousand inhabitants (fifteen hundred now). Today, Mugron has a street, a square, and a plaza named after Bastiat.
Saint-Sever. Major vine-growing district of the Landes.
