Autorenporträt
ROGER CÉLESTIN and ELIANE DALMOLIN are both Professors of French at the University of Connecticut, USA, and co-chairs of the French Studies Program. They have worked extensively in the area of Nineteenth and Twentieth century French culture and literature and are the co-editors of the only academic journal exclusively dedicated to contemporary France published in the USA. Having lived and worked in both 'worlds', the authors are academically and personally well versed in French and Francophone modernity, as well as with its American perception. The fact that they have been teaching, for close to six years, the course for which this book could be used, makes them acutely aware of the specific needs of its potential student audience.

Rezensionen
'Celestin and DalMolin have written an interesting and thoughtful general cultural history of France over a 150-year period...It will make a good resource for students, given its accessibility and the extensive material presented.' - Timothy Baycroft, French History

'...the work would usefully contribute to any university library, allowing non-Francophone students access to some very useful material and giving them a useful stimulus in forming ideas and analyses.' - Sharif Gemie, Journal of Contemporary European Studies
