Summary

An ideal supplement for courses in French History, French Civilization, Modern Europe, or Comparative Politics, this anthology of essays describes the major forces that have transformed France in the two centuries since the Revolution. Reflecting the work and research of leading North American and French historians, these essays engage students intellectually by providing a clearly developed point of view on a specific issue such as France's colonial mission, the making of the French working class, and the development of urban society. The essays also offer instructors a useful means of approaching topics often omitted from textbooks.
