Editorial Reviews


'This is an ideal accompaniment to an undergraduate course on French society and culture, and a book so wide-ranging and thought-provoking that it will provide much enjoyment for more advanced readers, such as postgraduates and academics.' Forum for Modern Language Studies

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Several of the essays are interesting, and it's hard to find overviews of French culture. I would buy it again. Several of the essays are just terrible, however: full of academic BS, and too often making relatively simple issues into complicated puzzles. The quality of the writing is very uneven.
