De Gaulle and Twentieth Century France Reviews


'...clearly the best standard text on twentieth-century France so far produced.' History Today '...easily readable and explains complexity clearly without becoming simplistic. Unlike nearly everything else, this is a book I would happily recommend to undergraduates coming to modern French history for the first time...Particularly commendable is the clear presentation of complex periods such as the 1930s and the presidencies of Pomidou, Giscard and Mitterrand.' South African Historical Journal 'The book's merit lies in its combination of clear narrative structure and style with a wealth of information drawn from a number of apposite areas...This is the best up-to-date introduction to the history of contemporary France currently available in English.' Modern and Contemporary France
