Abstract:

"Jonathan Fenby, journalist and Francophile, has been studying and reporting on the country for over thirty years. In these pages he lovingly but candidly offers an unvarnished picture of modern France, setting it in the context of its glorious past. He explores the problems and challenges it faces, as well as the opportunities that lie ahead. Filled with historical and contemporary anecdotes, France on the Brink depicts the many contradictory aspects of the country so many people love but also love to hate. Even those who know France well will find in its pages hundreds of fascinating Gallic tidbits that will inform, amuse, and enlighten."--Jacket.
