  • The Presidents of the French Fifth Republicby David S. Bell; John Gaffney

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 90.00

  • French Right between the Wars, Theby Samuel Kalman; Sean Kennedy

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    During the interwar years France experienced severe political polarization. At the time many observers, particularly on the left, feared that the French right had embraced fascism, generating a fierce debate that has engaged scholars for decades, but has also obscured critical changes in French society and culture during the 1920s and 1930s. This... more...

  • General de Gaulle's Cold Warby Garret Joseph Martin

    Berghahn Books 2013; US$ 95.00

    The greatest threat to the Western alliance in the 1960s did not come from an enemy, but from an ally.

  • De Gaulleby Andrew Shennan

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 62.95

    If any modern democratic leader has believed in the "great man'' theory of history and acted self-consciously in accordance with it, it was surely de Gaulle. On both occasions when he came to power it was in his own right, as a ``providential figure'', not as the representative of a political or social movement. In office, his wielding of power was,... more...

  • France and the Construction of Europe, 1944-2007by Michael Sutton

    Berghahn Books 2007; US$ 34.95

    In the second half of the twentieth century France played the greatest role - even greater than Germany?s - in shaping what eventually became the European Union. By the early twenty-first century, however, in a hugely transformed Europe, this era had patently come to an end. This comprehensive history shows how France coupled the pursuit of power... more...

  • Charles de Gaulle's Legacy of Ideasby Benjamin M. Rowland; Dana H. Allin; Timo Behr; David P. Calleo; Christopher S. Chivvis; John L. Harper; Thomas Row; Michael Stuermer; Lanxin Xiang

    Lexington Books 2011; US$ 32.99

    Charles de Gaulle combined the skills to master the politics of his own day with an uncanny sense of where history was going and how to position France accordingly. The essays in this volume examine certain of the policies and themes de Gaulle pursued nationally, in the European region, and internationally, giving consideration to their significance... more...

  • De Gaulleby Douglas Boyd

    The History Press 2013; US$ 26.24

    Watching a D-Day film, does anyone wonder why no French units took part in the invasion of their own German-occupied country? General Charles De Gaulle commaned 400,000 Free French soldiers, but US President Roosevelt insisted they not be told the date of the invasion because he intended to occupy France and open the country up to American Big Business,... more...

  • Marianne in Chainsby Robert Gildea

    Pan Macmillan UK 2002; US$ 20.90

    For the last fifty years, the German Occupation of France has been regarded as a period characterised by four things: cold, hunger, the absence of freedom and above all fear; a time when the indigenous population was cruelly and consistently oppressed by the army of occupation. The people of France were either bold members of the Resistance or craven... more...
