French Power In Africa

By John Chipman
Basil Blackwell, 1989
289 pp. $49.95

This definitive study of France's role in black Africa after decolonization combines a Francophile's appreciation of the "soft" dimensions of power, like culture and language, with an Anglo-Saxon's perspective, one in which the French role retains imperial overtones.
