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...

  • A Certain Idea of Franceby Phillip H. Gordon

    Princeton University Press 1993; US$ 37.95

  • Contemporary Franceby Howarth David; David Howarth; Georgios Varouxakis

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 34.95

    Warum reiste der französische Staatspräsident François Mitterrand im Dezember 1989 in die dem Untergang geweihte DDR?
