Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Combining concise accounts of specific nations and national differences with a wide-ranging, comparative analysis of international events, this updated edition of a classic text carefully examines the whole modern history of Europeans and their perpetually changing societies.

Rethinking France

For Pierre Nora, these are historical and geographical conceptions of "space." And, in the case of the French, these conceptions are not separate but instead uniquely linked. They are key to understanding French national identity.

How do we visualize a state or a nation? Some might imagine territory - the borders that divide countries, that mark the space where power is exercised and history evolves. Others might picture natural aspects like mountains, rivers, and landscapes that make their own country distinct. For Pierre Nora, these are historical and geographical conceptions of "space." And, in the case of the French, these conceptions are not separate but instead uniquely linked. They are key to understanding French national identity. In "Space", the second volume in the University of Chicago Press's translation of Nora's ambitious "Les Lieux de memoire", a group of France's leading historians and cultural commentators call attention to the meaning of space for the French and the firm connection between the nation's history and its geography. The essays gathered here cover the most essential approaches to French space: external and internal boundaries, the base unit of local space, and the mental construction that gives a general idea of the concept of landscape. The analyses focus on three aspects of natural boundaries: the forest, the north and the south, and the coastline. Each region of France, they show, is a space of memory that is the fruit of all the knowledge that gives it shape: statistical, cartographical, geological, and historical. A crucial piece in Nora's profound historical project on the way the French understand themselves, this volume will be appreciated by any critical thinker with an interest in French history, politics, culture, or philosophy

Excerpt from A History of France, Vol. 1 The work which follows is an abridged translation of the sev enteenth edition (1884) of the Histoire de France, in two volumes, by the distinguished French historian, M. Victor Duruy. A good, short history of France is, it is believed, a book widely desired; and perhaps this is especially true in the present year, when that great country, its past and its present, is attracting an unusual degree of attention. For this purpose no better choice could be made than that of the famous work of M. Duruy. Ex - President Andrew D. W'hite, of Cornell University, whose especial familiarity with French historical literature is well known, has said of it that, of all the short summaries of French history, this is probably the best. President C. K. Adams, in his Manual of Historical Litera ture, declares that it is beyond question, the best history Of France ever published in the small space Of two volumes. Its popularity in France itself is attested by the extraordinary number of the editions through which it has passed. In preparing the present abridgment, the effort has been made to follow as closely as possi ble the text of. The original. A continuation has been added, bring ing down the narrative from 1870 to the present year. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
