Publisher Comments:

This book provides a clear, well-informed and highly illustrated guide to French history from the early Middle Ages to the Mitterrand presidency. It is the most up-to-date and comprehensive study of France available, based on a carefully structured synthesis and written in an entertaining style for the student and traveler. Alongside major themes such as state and society, the impact of war, and the use of political power, Roger Price includes studies of major figures including Louis XIV, the two Napoleons, Clemenceau and De Gaulle, providing a concise yet complete history of the country.

Synopsis:

The new Concise History is an accessible and highly illustrated history of France, from the middle ages to Mitterrand.

Synopsis:

This book provides a clear and up-to-date guide to French history from the early middle ages to the present--from Charlemagne to Chirac. Among the book's central themes are the relationship between state and society, the impact of war and the use of political power. Substantially re-written to take account of recent research, this second edition includes a new chapter on contemporary France; a society and political system in crisis as a result of globalization, international terrorism, racial tension and a loss of confidence in political leaders.
