  • 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...

    OUP Oxford 2009; US$ 40.99

  • Alexis de Tocquevilleby Karlfriedrich Herb; Oliver Hidalgo

    Campus Verlag 2005; US$ 10.26

    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...

  • Contemporary Franceby Howarth David; Georgios Varouxakis; David Howarth

    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...

  • The Course of French Historyby Pierre Goubert

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 48.95

    This stimulating one-volume history traces the social and economic evolution of France as a nation from the founding of the monarchy in 987, to the present day. Against a background of structural change, Goubert etches a vivid account of key events and personalities. His perspective is a popular one, and his main interest is in how political events... more...

  • Crisis and Renewal in France, 1918-1962by Kenneth Moure; Martin S. Alexander

    Berghahn Books 2002; US$ 34.95

    Since 1914, the French state has faced a succession of daunting and at times almost insurmountable crises. The turbulent decades from 1914 to 1969 witnessed near-defeat in 1914, economic and political crisis in 1926, radical political polarization in the 1930s, military conquest in 1940, the deep division of France during the Nazi Occupation, political... more...

  • Das Ende einer Ausnahmeby Angelika Praus

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 30.27

    Warum reiste der französische Staatspräsident François Mitterrand im Dezember 1989 in die dem Untergang geweihte DDR? Warum schlug er Helmut Kohls Einladung aus, gemeinsam mit ihm durch das Brandenburger Tor zu schreiten? Warum ließ ausgerechnet Mitterrand, der 1984 mit Helmut Kohl Hand in Hand an den Gräbern von Verdun gestanden hatte, Unterstützung... more...
