From the Back Cover:

"The international team of contributors and consultants have provided over 700 entries offering wide-ranging coverage and crossing the traditional boundaries between disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. French culture is defined in its broadest sense and areas covered include: economy, education, film, food and wine, gender and sexuality, intellectual life, language and identity, literature, media, music, performing arts, politics, religion, society, and visual arts."--BOOK JACKET. "Entries range from shorter, factual contributions to longer overview essays, and provide an essential context for anyone studying French, readers with an interest in critical theory and anyone pursuing comparative studies in European culture."--BOOK JACKET.

About the Author:

Alex Hughes is Senior Lecturer in French at the University of Birmingham, and Keith Reader is Head of French Studies at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, England.
