Review:

There are a zillion guides to France jostling for position on travel shelves, but none gives more than a cursory Gallic nod to the people some people love to hate--the French themselves. Theodore Zeldin, an Englishman with great insight into his neighbors across the channel, has written the ultimate guide to the French, including how to laugh at their jokes, when to look solemn, how to appreciate French grandmothers, and how not to be intimidated by their intellectuals. It's a sympathetic, funny, serious, richly readable, charming book that hits the spot and fills a need.

About the Author:


THEODORE ZELDIN is a Fellow of St. Anthony's College, Oxford. His two-volume masterpiece, France, 1848-1945, received international acclaim, and his most recent work is An Intimate History of Humanity.
