Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Between Resistance and Collaboration is a study of the impact of the changes to the structure of authority and economy brought upon the population of northern France by the Nazi occupation. The book explores the various means by which the local population both protested hardships, forcing the authorities to do something about them, and evaded the plethora of political and economic regulations when the authorities were unable and unwilling to act.

Book News Annotation:

Taylor (history, the University of Waterloo, Canada) examines the impact of the Nazi occupation of northern France on the local population. She explores the impact of changes and the ways in which people dealt with hardships, exploring forms of protest including strikes and work stoppages, pillaging, food riots, black marketing, and theft. She paints a picture of a more complex relationship between occupier and occupied than is typically assumed. Appendices offer historical documents.
