About the Author

THEODORE ZELDIN is a Fellow of St Antony's College, Oxford.
His two-volume history, France 1848-1945 (1973,1977) received
international acclaim: The Times called it "brilliant, original, enter-
taining and inexhaustible"; Paris Match said that is was "the most
perspicacious, the most deeply researched, the liveliest and the
most enthralling panorama of French passions." His other books
include the novel Happiness (1988). Theodore Zeldin has been
awarded the Wolfson Prize and figures on Magazine Litteraire's list
of the hundreds most important thinkers in the world today.
