Overview


Bringing together key international scholars, Vichy, Resistance, Liberation offers original insight into this critical period of modern France. It shifts the focus away from straightforward political history to reflect the current interest in socio-cultural aspects of the Second World War and breaks down traditional chronological barriers. In seeking to understand war from a social perspective, the contributors focus on people and communities. Several contributors explore the lives of previously little known individuals in Vichy France--Paulette Bernège, Daniel Guérin, Georges Mauco, François Perroux. Other contributors emphasize some of the forgotten actors of the period, most notably the anarchists. Other contributors uncover new information about women's experience in Vichy France.
