MEDIA REVIEWS

"Popkin's book is probably the best text available today to use in an upper division course on modern French history. It is clear, concise, and well-written. It incorporates current research and will give students a general understanding of what French historians today think of most issues."

-Steven Kale, Washington State University

"A solid survey text for an upper-division course in Modern French history. Straightforward narrative and analysis; a good compliment to classroom lecture. I would recommend its use."

-Casey Harison, University of Southern Indiana

"I describe it as the most-comprehensive and intelligent overview of modern French history. Popkin covers almost all areas of French society in an intelligent, interesting narrative. At the same time, he skillfully incorporates important facts and necessary data so the student can develop his/her own critical viewpoint and apply it to the texts we read."

-Carol Lazzaro-Weis, University of Missouri-Columbia
