Greater France provides a comprehensive account of French overseas expansion from 1830 to 1962. After a prologue on the overseas empire of the old regime, chapters examine the conquest of a second empire in Africa, Asia and the islands of the South Seas in the era of the 'new imperialism'. Subsequent chapters explore the ideology behind expansion and the culture of colonialism in France, the migration of French men and women to overseas possessions, the economic history of the colonies, and the phenomenon of decolonisation. An epilogue surveys France's continued links with its former colonies and remaining outposts.

Review:

'At last, a textbook for a course I've been teaching for 4 years. Well researched, coherent and informative. Excellent undergraduate text.' - Paul Smith, University of Nottingham 'This is an excellent introductory survey of French colonialism. Exceptionally well informed and written in a clear, accessible style, it provides a highly readable account of French colonialism...can be recommended with confidence.' - Tony Chafer, University of Portsmouth
