A History of France (Palgrave Essential Histories Series)
By: Joseph Bergin (author)Paperback
Few modern countries can boast of such a lengthy history as France, a staple of European maps for the last millennium. This engaging narrative analyses French political, social and cultural history since 987, in a single volume. Through revolution, war and peace, it explores how the Frankland of 1000AD has grown into the France we know today.
Joseph Bergin is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Manchester, UK, and Fellow of the British Academy. He is a series editor for Palgrave Macmillan's European Studies Series.
