GCfE Book Conversations of 'France' by Emile Chabal
GCfE 2020-2021 "Communities in Europe" series present Book Conversations of 'France'. Author Emile Chabal (University of Edinburgh) will be in conversations with Sonia Lamrani (Modern Languages, University of Birmingham) and Simon Jackson (Modern Middle Eastern History, University of Birmingham).

'France' by Emile Chabal:
"In this arresting book, Emile Chabal, a leading specialist of contemporary France, tells the story of a paradoxical country. From the calamitous defeat by Hitler's armies in 1940 to the spectacular gilets jaunes protests, he explores the contradictions that have shaped French history over the last eighty years. The picture that emerges is one of a nation struggling to reconcile its core political values with the realities of a diverse society."

"Emile Chabal is a Reader in History at the University of Edinburgh. He is one of the foremost experts on twentieth-century French political and intellectual history. He has published widely on topics such as French republicanism, secularism, the legacies of empire, identity politics and Franco-British relations, including a groundbreaking study of French politics entitled A Divided Republic: nation, state and citizenship in contemporary France."
