    UNP - Nebraska 2006; US$ 24.95 US$ 21.21

    Before the Vichy regime, there was ostensibly only one France and one form of colonialism for French West Africa (FWA).

    What made France into an imperialist nation, ruler of a global empire with millions of dependent subjects overseas?

    Violence was prominent in France’s conquest of a colonial empire, and the use of force was integral to its control and regulation of colonial territories.

    Of the thousands of people who escaped through the Pyrenees during World War II, at least one hundred owe their lives to a daring scheme that Belgian Charles Schepens masterminded in Mendive, a remote Basque village near the French-Spanish border.

  • A Brief History of Franceby Cecil Jenkins

    Little, Brown Book Group 2011; US$ 10.99

    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...
