Mission To Civilize: The French Way

By Mort Rosenblum
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1986
480 pp. $19.95
Purchase

A panoramic account of France and its empire, past and especially present, breezy and even informative, by a resident journalist at once knowledgeable and bemused. Even a dedicated Francophile might bridle at this conclusion: "Having killed hundreds of thousands in colonial wars, France is a Third World symbol of liberty, equality, and brotherhood."
