The French Challenge: Adapting to Globalization
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe French Challenge deals with France's effort to adapt to globalization and its consequences for France's economy, cultural identity, domestic politics, and foreign relations. By examining a wide variety of possible measures of globalization and liberalization, the authors conclude that the French economy's adaptation has been far reaching and largely successful, even if French leaders prefer to downplay the extent of these changes in response to political pressures and public opinion.

Pressestimmen"Rarely has such a clear book been written about the big issue of the day in France. Avoiding the usual stereotypes and polemics, Gordon and Meunier pulverize a number of cliches, beginning with that of a France incapable of adapting to globalization." --Pascal Riche, Liberation "The authors have done a fine job of undermining American cliches about present-day France both by explaining the historical and intellectual roots of French resistance to globalization and by showing how successful France has been in adapting to its challenges without thereby becoming Americanized. " --Stanley Hoffmann, Buttenwieser University Professor, Harvard University "Anyone wanting a primer on contemporary France or an intelligent exegesis of the Franco-American dynamic will find The French Challenge a lively read. " --Celia Whitaker, Foreign Affairs "This little gem of a book is a model of scholarship. It is well conceived and executed, full of relevant facts, and studded with excellent quotations. Its American and French coauthors, Philip H. Gordon and Sophie Meunier, aim to be comprehensive, objective, and balanced, and they succeed... Gordon and Meunier have done France, and us, a service by so ably presenting [the French] case and its reality to the world." --Paul Seaton, Fordham University, Perspectives on Political Science "This little gem of a book is a model of scholarship.

Cleeton, Oberlin College and College of Europe, Modern and Contemporary France "It's no wonder that the French translation of the book has won awards (Notably the 2002 France-Amerique prize) and widespread praise...[Godon and Meunier's] brief book is an outstanding evaluation of French realities, as opposed to French rhetorical flourishes." --Regina Karp, Old Dominion University, Contemporary Security Policy
