France and the World since 1870 (International Relations and the Great Powers)

Buy
Here, John Keiger examines the subtle forces that have shaped France's international relations, from material aspects such as geography, demography, and economics, to more abstract features of France's national identity such as the notion of state and the impulse to spread French culture. The
first study of its kind in English, the book is divided into thematic chapters that include discussions of how foreign policy is formulated and executed, the nature of strategy and defence, France's allies and adversaries, cultural diplomacy, and an assessment of French espionage. A final chapter
examines France's position in the post-Cold War era, its adjustment to the new international system, and the extent to which old mentalities persist or have been resurrected.
