Le Choix de Marianne: Les Relations Franco-Americaines, 1944-1948

By Annie Lacroix-Ris
Messidor, 1985
222 pp.
Purchase

A tendentious analysis of Franco-American relations from Liberation to the Marshall Plan, with the theme that the United States forced France into submission and also consistently favored German over French interests. A crude picture of American "imperialism," of European countries being reduced to states approximating banana republics. Allegedly based on new archival sources, the book does not identify them; the reader is referred to the author's these d'etat for the sources. Abundant secondary literature is used selectively. A caricature of revisionism, but enough to suggest that a serious new look at political-economic relations in that period might be useful.
