In this compelling volume, Tyler Stovall takes a transnational approach to the history of modern France, and by doing so draws the reader into a key aspect of France's political culture: universalism. Beginning with the French Revolution and its aftermath, Stovall traces the definitive establishment of universal manhood suffrage and the abolition of slavery in 1848. Following this critical time in France's history, Stovall then explores the growth of urban and industrial society, the beginnings of mass immigration, and the creation of a new, republican Empire. This time period gives way to the history of the two world wars, the rise of political movements like Communism and Fascism, and new directions in popular culture. The text concludes with the history of France during the Fourth and Fifth republics, concentrating on decolonization and the rise of postcolonial society and culture. Throughout these major historical events Stovall examines France's relations with three other areas of the world: Europe, the United States, and France's colonial empire, which includes a wealth of recent historical studies. By exploring these three areas-and their political, social, and cultural relations with France-the text will provide new insights into both the nature of French identity and the making of the modern world in general.

From the Back Cover:

In this compelling volume, Tyler Stovall takes a transnational approach to the history of modern France, and draws the reader into a key aspect of France’s political culture: universalism. Beginning with the French Revolution, Stovall traces the evolution of France through industrialization, the rise of republicanism, empire, the world wars, and decolonization. Throughout the book, Stovall examines France’s relations with three other areas of the world: Europe, the United States, and the empire. By exploring these global interactions the text provides new insights into both the nature of French identity and the making of the modern world in general.

Tyler Stovall has produced an excellent comprehensive history of modern France from the Revolution of 1789-99 to the present. He situates France in the wider global context by examining the impact the country has had beyond its borders. The book’s elegant and easy-to read prose and multi-disciplinary approach makes it an invaluable guide for instructors seeking a more global approach to French history and to students at all stages of their academic careers.”
Patricia Lorcin, University of Minnesota

Tyler Stovall’s Transnational France offers a vivid and concise portrait of French history since the Revolution. He demonstrates forcefully that contemporary debates about immigration and religion in France are only the latest chapter in a long history of complex interactions with people, goods, and ideas from every part of the globe.”

Joshua Cole, University of Michigan

Stovall tells an overdue story of how France came to understand itself as a universal nation’ through its transnational entanglements with Europe, empires, and the U.S. Sure to become a standard teaching text, this masterful synthesis and engaging narrative is a powerful example for students and scholars seeking to transcend the national history paradigm without minimizing the importance of nations for modern history.”

Gary Wilder, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York

A rich and remarkable journey. Stovall shows beautifully how French and global history have been tightly imbricated for centuries, offering us a vivid re-imagining of the nation’s past and present.”

Laurent Dubois, Duke University

Tyler Stovall is a Professor of French History at University of California, Santa Cruz. He is the author ofParis and the Spirit of 1919 and Paris Noir: African Americans in the City of Light.
