"This is a truly daunting undertaking as there is arguably no other
period in French history in which such profound changes took place during such a relatively short span
of time: the transformation from an agrarian-based society to a modern, industrial state; the acquisition
of a colonial empire and its violent dénouement; two world wars largely fought on French soil, one of
which nearly led to the nation's demise; and the incorporation of France into the EU to name but only a
few. Thus, the authors are to be commended for producing a work that is remarkably lucid and easily
accessible for students and non-specialists alike.
While much of the material is well known to scholars, there are enough unique insights interspersed
throughout the narrative to engage the specialist. Indeed, given its breadth and surprising depth this
text surpasses other such treatments and is likely to serve as the text of choice for those engaged in the
study and teaching of modern France and the Francophone world."
