Contemporary French Culture and Society

This series includes an engaging comparative study of the cross-cultural differences between French cinema classics and their American remakes, and two books concerning World War II–era France—one a scholarly examination of an episode in the midst of the chaotic strife that engulfed France at the end of the war, the other a collection of essays on the cases of two former Vichy officials charged with crimes against humanity in the 1980s.

We are no longer accepting submissions for this series.
