March 2009 American Reference Books Annual
An excellent resource for anybody interested in learning more about the history of France and its influence on politics, art, history, philosophy, and culture....The authority of the book is good, and is free from obvious bias....accessible...recommended...should be considered essential for the reference collection.

Topics from the arts, sciences, and politics are covered with great breath and precision.... An exceptional introductory essay serves as a refresher for readers on French geography, people, and history....This updated, valuable reference is a must-have for academic and larger public libraries.
