Victor Davis Hanson"Remember the Paris heat wave of 2003 that killed 15,000 Frenchmen, the obscene French arms sales to Saddam, and Minister de Villepin's bushwhacking of America at the UN? All that and far more are in Denis Boyles' timely Vile France, an at times lighthearted and always insightful look at how the French elite bamboozles the world in its crass support for mass murderers, corrupt totalitarians, and any tinhorn dictator that expresses a shared hatred of the United Statesvenom that is all gussied up with Gallic intellectual pretension and appeals to fraternity and humanism. Boyles' illustrations of the categories of French perfidy would make great comedyif they were not so deadly accurate and all so sad."
