  • Adventures in the French Tradeby Jeffrey Mehlman

    Stanford University Press 2010; US$ 21.95

    This memoir is less a chronicle of the life of a leading scholar/critic of matters French (and a key figure in the naturalization of French "theory" in English) than a series of differently angled fragments, episodes, each with its attendant surprise, in what one commentator has called his amour vache, his injured and occasionally injurious love, for... more...

  • After the Fallby Thomas J. Laub

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 38.99

    German policy in occupied France during the Second World War was in many ways a story of bitter internal conflict between the various German agencies in charge of the occupation.

  • Alexis de Tocquevilleby Karlfriedrich Herb; Oliver Hidalgo

    Campus Verlag 2005; US$ 12.27

    Wenn ein Aristokrat die Demokratie favorisiert, ein Franzose die Amerikaner lobt und ein Freigeist nach Religion verlangt, scheint dies paradox. Tocqueville (1805-1859) beweist, dass der erste Blick oft täuschen kann. Seine Werke werfen Probleme auf, die bis heute ungelöst sind: Wie viel Demokratie darf man wagen? Gibt es einen Konsens zwischen Eigennutz... more...

  • Alexis de Tocquevilleby Joseph Epstein

    HarperCollins 2006; US$ 10.99

    Alexis de Tocqueville was among the first foreigners to recognize and trumpet the grandness of the American project. His two-volume classic, Democracy in America , published in 1835, not only offered a vivid account of what was then a new nation but famously predicted what that nation would become. His startling prescience, as well as the endurance... more...

  • A Brief History of Franceby Cecil Jenkins

    Constable & Robinson 2011; US$ 11.65

    When we think of France we often evoke images of fine food and wine, the elegant boulevards of Paris, the chic beaches of St Tropez. Yet, as the largest country in Europe, it is a place of huge diversity. The idea of 'Frenchness' emerged from over 2000 years of history and it is a riveting story from Roman conquest to the present day. Cecil Jenkins... more...

  • Contemporary Franceby Howarth David; David Howarth; Georgios Varouxakis

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 34.95

    At least since the French Revolution, France has the peculair distinction of simultaneously fascinating, charming and exasperating its neighbours and foreign observers. Contemporary France provides an essential introduction for students of French politics and society, exploring contemporary developments while placing them in a deeper historical, intellectual,... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 48.95
