About this title:


An overview of the history of France from the mid-18 century to the present.


Organized chronologically, A History of Modern France presents a survey of the dramatic events that have punctuated French history, including the French Revolution, the upheavals of the 19 century, the world wars of the 20 century, and France’s current role in the European Union.


Written for today’s undergraduate students, the text presents scholarly controversies in an unbiased manner and reflects the best of contemporary scholarship in French history.


Learning Goals

Upon completing this book readers will be able to:

  • Describe important events in modern French history

  • Understand the political, cultural, social, and economic forces that have shaped contemporary France

  • Appreciate the continued importance of French history for students in the 21 century



“Popkin's book is probably the best text available today to use in an upper division course on modern French history. It is clear, concise, and well-written. It incorporates current research and will give students a general understanding of what French historians today think of most issues.”

          -Steven Kale, Washington State University


“A solid survey text for an upper-division course in Modern French history. Straightforward narrative and analysis; a good compliment to classroom lecture. I would recommend its use.”

          -Casey Harison, University of Southern Indiana


“I describe it as the most-comprehensive and intelligent overview of modern French history. Popkin covers almost all areas of French society in an intelligent, interesting narrative. At the same time, he skillfully incorporates important facts and necessary data so the student can develop his/her own critical viewpoint and apply it to the texts we read.”

          -Carol Lazzaro-Weis, University of Missouri-Columbia
