A History of France, Hardback Book

A History of France Hardback

Part of the Macmillan Essential Histories series


Few modern countries can boast of such a lengthy history as France, whose distinctive shape has been a key feature of the successive stages of European history during the past millennium.

This engaging narrative seamlessly weaves together the complex tale of French history since the year 1000. Bringing together political, religious, social and cultural developments, A History of France provides an insightful and readable overview of the country's history as it moved from a dominant position within Europe - with an empire stretching across the continents - to one in which it was invaded and occupied by its largest neighbour.

Through revolution, war and peace, Joseph Bergin explores how the Frankland of 1000 CE has mutated into the France we know today.
