This is the latest volume to appear in the successful 'Cambridge History of Modern France' series, and is the most authoritative account currently available of Georges Pompidou's presidency. Pompidou had the difficult task of succeeding de Gaulle, and of steering France through industrialisation and economic crisis. Serge Berstein and Jean-Pierre Rioux analyse the politics, economy, culture and society of the Pompidou years. Their comprehensive study contains all standard features which have helped this series to establish itself as the premier multi-volume account of modern France.
