Politics of Depression in France 1932-1936 by Julian Jackson
Book DescriptionThe poor performance of the French economy in the 1930s has long been recognised as a major contributory factor in the decline of the Third Republic, which collapsed after the defeat of 1940. Although France entered the Great Depression later than the rest of the world, French governments failed to learn from the experience of other countries in combating it. This book is the first full study of the formation of economic policy in these crucial years, and of the political debate to which it gave rise. It examines the origins of the notion of planning and the 'planomania', which gripped France in 1934; and it shows why this solution was ultimately rejected. It also analyses in detail the arguments of pro- and anti-devaluers. The conclusion suggests that stagnation was to some extent chosen as a conscious policy, since at least until 1936 the Depression never seemed severe enough to threaten the social order.

5/1/1968, Hardback (August 2011)
The events of 1968 are often seen purely as a student revolution, but impacted on every aspect of French society - theatre, film, sexuality, race, the countryside, the factories. This volume explores the full diversity of this extraordinary upheaval, and shows how 1968 continues to reverberate in France today.
Living in Arcadia, Hardback (January 2010)
In Paris in 1954, Andre Baudry founded Arcadie, an organization for 'homophiles'. Yet despite its huge importance, Arcadie has largely disappeared from the historical record. This title uncovers Arcadie's pioneering efforts to educate the European public about homosexuality in an era of renewed repression.
Grande Illusion, Paperback (September 2009)
Jean Renoir's 1937 film La Grande Illusion is set during the First World War, but its themes of Franco-German conflict, divided loyalties in a time of war and the rise of anti-Semitism made it compelling and controversial viewing. Julian Jackson traces the film's historical context and its reception history.
