France since 1800

D.L.L. Parry and Pierre Girard

  • No other textbook covers the same chronological period - backtracking to the 19th century helps to emphasize the continuities and changes in modern French history and shows how France today has been shaped by its past
  • The authors do not assume any prior knowledge of French history and their lively and accessible writing style makes this book an ideal single volume introduction to modern French history
  • Covers many aspects of French history - including politics, economy, religion, gender, and French relations with the rest of the world - in recognition of the broad interests of university courses and general readers
  • Incorporates the latest research, including archival and French secondary sources that have not yet filtered through to British textbooks
