Pressestimmen"How--and even whether--to preserve their once-homogeneous culture in today's open world is one of France's supreme challenges today. With five sharply-etched case studies of cultural conflict--from the World Cup to museums to the defense of the Larzac plateau--Herman Lebovics casts penetrating light on French struggles to establish who they are and who they want to be."--Robert O. Paxton, author of Europe in the 20th Century "This is a must read that redefines the tenor and terrain of postcolonial scholarship." Ann Laura Stoler, author of Race and the Education of Desire "For those eager to understand the social tensions recently so evident in contemporary France, this book makes an excellent starting point."--History, 2007
