France on the Brink: A Great Civilization Faces a New Century

France on the Brink: A Great Civilization Faces a New Century Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

France today is in crisis. High unemployment, an archaic economic system, a self-selecting governing class unable to handle serious problems, and a debilitating nostalgia for things past are creating a nation less able than ever to fulfill its role — at the very moment of European unification — as a world leader.

Urgent and convincing, this comprehensive [and] astonishing work (Washington Times) will inform and provoke even the most knowledgeable Francophile.

-- Balanced and vividly written: this isn't France bashing but an informed critique by a renowned journalist who deeply respects French culture and its achievements.

-- A new history of postwar France for the new millennium, as well as a timely assessment telling the French to get their house in order.

Synopsis:

Urgent and convincing, this work will inform even the most knowledgeable Francophile. Balanced and vividly written, "France on the Brink" isn't France bashing but an informed critique by a renowned journalist who deeply respects French culture and its achievements.
