France and Its Empire Since 1870: The Republican Tradition by Alice L. Conklin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A new history of modern France built around five innovative features that reviewers strongly support. The text will maintain the 'traditional' narrative that students need and integrate the themes of imperialism and immigration into the narrative, while situatiing French history in both transnational and global contexts. It will also integrate recent work in social, intellectual, and cultural history, which, as readers stressed, the three authors and their complementary strengths are ideally suited to accomplish. The book also includes ample illustrations, maps and vignettes that will make the book inviting to students and facilitate classroom discussion. There is no consensus concerning the text's chronology, owing to the fact that courses in modern French history do not have standard dates. Some courses cover 1789 to the present, others start in 1815, 1870, even 1914. The field of modern France is moving generally toward a greater emphasis on the twentieth century and on France's interaction with other parts of the globe.
