The "battle of the books" between ancient and modern continues to have decidedly un-bookish consequences. The French Statesman Charles de Gaulle fought an incident in this war, founding a political regime in modernity whose principles transcended modern political philosophy. De Gaulle rejected both bourgeois democracy and anti-bourgeois totalitarianism, framing a republicanism hospitable to civic responsibility and human greatness. Reflections on De Gaulle, first published in 1983, remains the only book centered on textual interpretation of each of de Gaulle's major works, themselves part of his lifelong enterprise to bring a stable republican government to France. Will Morrisey examines de Gaulle's works, from La discorde chez l'ennemi, his incisive critique of the German elites' quasi-Nietzschean overreaching in the First World War, to Memoires d'espoir, his magisterial account of the founding of the Fifth Republic. The text has been corrected and entirely reset in an attractive format for greater ease of use.
