Reviews

“Overall, Colonial Culture in France is a very wellwritten book that showcases the potential benefits of multi-authorship as well as the ability of scholars to simultaneously reach both academic and non-academic audiences. It could be recommended to readers interested in various aspects of France’s (post-)colonial history as well those seeking to understand contemporary French society, whether in the Élysée Palace or the banlieues of greater Paris.”

“Colonial Culture in France since the Revolution examines several aspects of French colonialism as well as its post-colonial heritage. The collection includes contributions by scholars and literary figures alike.”
