Description
Exploring the history of France from the end of the 19th century to the turn of the 21st, this history encapsulates everything from political events and scientific discoveries to cultural achievements and sporting triumphs, illustrated with 200 black and white photos. The five presidents of France's fifth republic—Charles de Gaulle, Georges Pompidou, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, François Mitterand, and Jacques Chirac—are covered in detail, along with milestones like the Dreyfus Affair, the two world wars, the May 1968 student protests, and the onset of socialist government. Here too are figures from Colette, Marie Curie, and Josephine Baker to Picasso, Claude Debussy, and Michel Foucault.

"This volume, with its well-chosen and rarely seen photographs, and its brisk, efficient historical narrative covering the country's social, political, intellectual and economic life, serves admirably as a primer for tourists, students and those seeking to understand France and the French."—Publishers Weekly
