  • France's Camargue, Arles, Les Saintes Maries de la Mer & Aigues Mortesby Ferne Arfin

    Hunter Publishing 2013; US$ 4.99

    Broad, flat and sunburnt, the Camargue is an almost surreal web of shallow, lakes (étangs), meandering rivers, canals, marshes and dunes.

A rough triangle, bounded on the north by Arles, the west by Aigues Mortes and theeast... more...

  • France's Vaucluse, the Lubéron & Mont Ventouxby Ferne Arfin

    Hunter Publishing 2014; US$ 4.99

    Head north and east of Avignon and the landscape of Provence changes dramatically. The fertile plains of western Vaucluse, known as the Comtat Venaissin, give way to rising, forested hills and mountains.

  • The A to Z of the French Revolutionby Paul R. Hanson

    Scarecrow Press 2007; US$ 33.99

    The French Revolution remains the most examined event and period in world history. Most historians would argue that it was the first "modern" revolution, an event so momentous that it changed the very meaning of the word revolution to its current connotation of a political and/or social upheaval that marks a decisive break with the past, moving the... more...

  • Mitterrand und Deutschlandby Ulrich Lappenküper

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2011; US$ 70.00

    François Mitterrand zählt zu den schillerndsten französischen Staatsmännern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Seit langem ist bekannt, dass er seine ambivalente Vita bewusst "begradigt" und in einem Dickicht von Geheimnissen verhüllt hat. Zu dieser Inszenierung gehört vor allem seine Selbststilisierung zum fast lebenslangen Verfechter der deutsch-französischen... more...

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2014; US$ 112.00

  • Das Andere der Monarchieby Jan-Friedrich Mißfelder

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2012; US$ 63.00

    Der Konflikt zwischen der Hugenottenmetropole La Rochelle und der französischen Krone zwischen 1568 und 1630, der in der spektakulären Belagerung von 1628/29 gipfelte, war ein Kampf um die Legitimation von Herrschaft im frühneuzeitlichen Frankreich. Die neuartige Ideologie der Absoluten Monarchie steht dabei traditionellen, an Konsens und Privilegienwahrung... more...
