"This book is an elegant, sophisticated and forceful presentation of two French views on the global condition. Whatever ones' view of France and the French, there is much food for thought here." Louis R. Golino, Insights, 9/1/2001
"Vedrine, who remarks, 'In our era, foreign policy must continually be explained,' has certainly met his own criteria by defining France's foriegn policy in an open, candid, and very readable series of interviews that are of particular interest to a US audience." Robert J. Guttman, Europe, 10/1/2001
"The intelligence and the lucidity of the analysis... go some way to assert the French Foreign Secretary's stature as a statesman.... Vedrine succeeds in showing how he manages fully to engage with the in-depth changes of the twenty-first century while staying true to the fundamentals of the French geopolitical code." Pascal Venier, University of Salford, UK, Royal Institute of International Affairs, 1/1/2002
"In a sparkling English translation by Philip H. Gordon, Vedrine comes alive as a true character -brilliant, haughty, frank and sly all at once." Gideon Rose, Foreign Affairs, Managing Editor, Survival (vol.44 n.3 2002)
