If you are looking for a comprehensive explanation of post-revolutionary France, this book is not for you, however, it does provide a fantastic overview of the period, highlighting key dates and events. Useful accompaniment to contemporary French studies.
A well thought out and presented introduction to recent french history. The importance of the french contribution to world history in the 19th and 20th centuries cannot be over estimated. An adequate introduction. C'est trés bon.
I knew book was secondhand but when I received it and went to have a flick through all the pages were stuck together with sticky stuff, it was coffee stained and looked like it had been dropped in a bath- not happy
