La Revanche de l'Histoire
La Revanche de l'Histoire
By Thierry de Montbrial
Julliard, 1985, 197 pp.

A collection of essays-in the style of Raymond Aron-on the political and economic prospects of Western society in the remaining years of the century. Learned and lucid, these essays mix analysis and prescription and propose new policies for France. Montbrial was the first head of the Planning Division of the French Foreign Office and in 1979 founded the French Institute of Foreign Relations, of which he remains the director.
