A guidebook can show you where to go, a language guide what to say when you get there. But only "Speak the Culture: France" will lead you to a nation's soul. This easy to use cultural companion considers how it feels to have grown up with Flaubert, Cezanne and Bardot; it captures the flavours of French regional cuisine, paints the colour of festival life and delves deep into the Gallic psyche. Through exploring the people, movements and the lifestyles that have shaped the French experience, you will come to an intimate understanding of France and the French. This is not a travel guide or a manual on living in France. It's a superbly designed, informed and engaging insight into French life and culture and who the French really are

The creativity of its artists may be undeniable, but the influence (ghostlike) and the importance (derisory) of France in cultural exchanges both go to show that French culture no longer speaks to the world. This decline ultimately suits the French national mentality, inclined as it is to lamentation and sorrow. Morrison has returned to his original article to see how well his central arguments hold up in the light of the criticisms levelled at him. This new and updated version of his controversial text is accompanied by a thoughtful reply by Antoine Compagnon, who highlights a certain ambivalence within French culture, still capable of achieving the best but seemingly paralysed by its preoccupation with its own grandeur. --from publisher description

`Culture' is one of the most frequently used terms in the French vocabulary. It sells not only books, newspapers and magazines but also consumer products and political parties. But what are the meanings of `culture populaire'? What have the French understood by it, and what is its history? Brian Rigby's lively and cogent study traces changing notions of popular culture in France, from 1936 - the year of the Popular Front - to the present day. Asking why `culture' has become such a fiercely contested term, Rigby considers the work of the major French theorists, including Barthes, Bourdieu and Baudrillard.

Research in the Field of Gay and Lesbian Studies has exploded in recent years, but the books published to date focus more on literary than historical issues, and concentrate more on the United States and Great Britain than the rest of the world. Given the role of gays and lesbians in modern French culture, not to mention the importance of the work of French scholars on the history of sexuality, France has been underrepresented in recent publications on both sides of the Atlantic. This exciting collection is the first attempt in any language to explore this subject over three centuries from a variety of perspectives. Based on archival research textual analysis, Homosexuality in Modern France examines the realities and representations of same-sex sexuality in France in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, the period that witnessed the emergence of "homosexuality" in the modern sense of the world.
