|Responsibility:||edited by Jill Forbes and Michael Kelly.|
As well as looking at the literary, artistic, and intellectual culture for which France is renowned, the authors examine audio-visual media, popular culture, and cultural policy. They follow the stages of French history through periods of industrialization and war, reconstruction and modernization, and the crises and revolutions of post-colonialism and postmodernity. Also explored are the development of interconnecting patterns and cultural forms, in addition to the ways in which culture has shaped and reflected social and historical change. Copiously illustrated, and with guidance for further reading, this fascinating and authoritative work is essential reading for anyone interested in modern and contemporary French society and its culture.
