France on the Brink: A Great Civilization Faces a New Centuryby Jonathan Fenby
Synopses & Reviews
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.
