De Gaulle and Twentieth Century France Summary

De Gaulle and Twentieth Century France: Politics and Society 1898-1991 by James F. McMillan

Originally published as "Dreyfus to de Gaulle", this authoritative account has been revised and extended, its greater chronological range reflected in the new title.Two substantial additional chapters have been incorporated focussing on the presidencies of Pompidou, Giscard d'Estaing, and Mitterrand and on the immense social and economic changes the country has expereinced in the years since 1969. No other book provides such a stimulating and up-to-date study of modern France.

De Gaulle and Twentieth Century France Reviews

'...clearly the best standard text on twentieth-century France so far produced.' History Today '...easily readable and explains complexity clearly without becoming simplistic. Unlike nearly everything else, this is a book I would happily recommend to undergraduates coming to modern French history for the first time...Particularly commendable is the clear presentation of complex periods such as the 1930s and the presidencies of Pomidou, Giscard and Mitterrand.' South African Historical Journal 'The book's merit lies in its combination of clear narrative structure and style with a wealth of information drawn from a number of apposite areas...This is the best up-to-date introduction to the history of contemporary France currently available in English.' Modern and Contemporary France
