Review: A History of Modern France

User Review  - Goodreads

Exactly what it sounds like. It's not one where you can just sit down and read for fun, like these other ones are - it's a textbook, and it's written like one. Very dense and not much verve, but extremely useful in providing context for a lot of other books and clearing up their ambiguities. Read full review
