Decline and Renewal of France, 1914-2014
Examines what happens when a former great power enters into decline. Losses sustained during the Great War, defeat by Nazi Germany in 1940, and the wars of decolonization forced the French to undertake dramatic change in their state, society, and international relations. But as recent battles over immigration, religion, the 'war on terror', and European integration reveal, recovery has come at the cost of deep divisions over national identity and France's place in the world.
