Modern France and the World provides an engaging global history of the key events of modern France and its empire. It moves beyond the traditional political narrative of the development of the French Republican nation-state to offer both national and international perspectives of its evolution.
The volume illustrates the integral exchanges that have taken place between France and the modern world, from global trade in the eighteenth century to the impact of postcolonial immigration and globalization on French identity and on France’s diverse population. It includes the voices of women, colonized populations, and those who both embraced and challenged the spread of French ideas and values around the globe. Drawing on methodologies of social, cultural, and gender history, this textbook integrates a wide range of analytical tools to entice readers to engage more deeply in France’s dynamic global history.
By presenting the history of France and its global engagements from the mid-seventeenth century to the present, this volume is an essential resource for all students who study the history, politics, and culture of modern France.
