Following the success of the hardback edition, 'French Culture and Society' is now available in paperback. It offers an introduction to French culture and society and a route-map to further study. Designed specifically with undergraduates in mind, it contains around 450 short and accessible explanations of the key words, events, figures and concepts in France since 1918.
From 'argot' and 'chanson' to 'Tour de France' and the 'Vichy Regime', this glossary gives an interdisciplinary overview of French culture and society, and offers directions for further reading. Covering politics, popular culture, private life, cultural institutions and significant events, the entries are fully cross-referenced and assume no prior knowledge, making this an essential reference for students of French culture in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

A welcome new addition to the reference material that one can recommend to students of French...this is a volume that for its coverage, concision and clarity one can warmly recommend as a key reference tool for undergraduates.
