This is the second text by Popkin I've used for a class (the other being a Short History of the French Revolution) and I found both to be interesting and easy to follow. It's not often that I'll read a textbook for fun, but I will with Popkin's books.
This is a very good book. It helps me in my History of France from 1815-Present class. Thank you all for this service
I had to rent this book for my class on French history, and having gone through its contents, I like how my French history professor restricted the scope of French history to the 20th century, since I'm all too familiar with Charles de Gaulle and the fall of France in WW2.
