About the Author:

The Author: Monique Wagner, who holds a French «baccalauréat», a B.A. and an M.A. from Wayne State University, and a Ph.D. from Columbia University, has specialized in French seventeenth-century literature and French Civilization and is currently teaching at Wayne State University. She has also taught at Columbia University, Barnard College and Eastern Michigan University. She has published articles dealing with French literature and culture, and lectures on a wide variety of topics related to France. Her book Molière and the Age of Enlightenment has appeared in the Studies on Voltaire and the Eighteenth Century series. She was decorated with the order of Palmes Académiques, an honor bestowed upon her by the French Government.

Review:

«Such a substantial and useful book... it does indeed fulfill the need I pointed out.» (Laurence Wylie, Harvard University)
«Most histories of France in French assume prior knowledge that American students lack... Wagner has made her account accessible... by telling it quite simply and illustrating it profusely with drawings, commemorative stamps and photos of historic paintings and buildings. She also gives much more attention than either Knapton or Bertier to social and art history, without neglecting the main political events.» (Howard Nostrand, University of Washington)
«‘From Gaul to De Gaulle’ will undoubtedly be welcomed by many. Indeed, for the reader who seeks a concise manual in English offering a foundation in the major periods and characteristics of French civilization, this book may prove the only choice.» (Tobin H. Jones, in The French Review)
«This book fills an important gap in the field and should be of great interest both to scholars and the public at large. Wagner’s extensive knowledge and meticulous research have resulted in an excellent portrayal of what has shaped French society, history, and culture. This accessible and attractive text ties together accurately and concisely historic and cultural developments and enlightens them in fascinating detail...its pace is quick enough to read almost as a novel.» (Brian Morton, The University of Michigan)
«...unique in its kind... It will be very useful to the profession.» (Richard Vernier, Wayne State University)
