"A brilliantly original account-narrated from both sides-of the love-hate relationship between Britain and France that began in the time of Louis XIV and shows no sigh of abating. That Sweet Enemy brings both British wit (Robert Tombs is a British historian) and Gallic panache (Isabelle Tombs is a French historian) to bear on three centuries of the history of Britain and France. The authors take us from Waterloo to Chiracʾs slandering of British cooking, charting the cross-channel entanglement and its unparalleled breadth of cultural, economic and political influence. They illuminate the complexity of the relationship - rivalry, enmity, misapprehension and loathing mixed with envy, admiration and genuine affection - and the ways in which it has shaped the modern world, from North America to the Middle East to Southeast Asia, and is still shaping Europe today. They make clear that warfare between the two countries often went hand in hand with hardy, if hidden, strains of anglophilia and francophilia; conversely, though France and Britain were allies for much of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, it has been an alliance almost as uneasy, as competitive and as ambivalent as the previous generations of warfare.

This book is contains lots of information, events, dates and names that will slow down your reading every once in a while. It also contains opinions and arguments between the two authors. But i really like this book because it gives you such a diverse and wide-ranging historical account of those two countries which you don't normally see in other history books. It gives you a historical account of the difference in culture, literary achievements, political issues, daily life, food as well the interaction and major events between the two countries, all in one book! It also contains interesting pictures that will surely pique the interest of history lovers! ( )

Terrific blend of political, cultural, and social history. Written with verve and first-rate scholarship. ( )

Few books on international relations are as much fun to read as this brilliant description of the last 300 years of Anglo-French relations. Well grounded in the cultural and literary histories of both countries, the Tombses are able to provide a rich and comprehensive account of more than the political relations between Paris and London. Their eye for paradox and aptitude for epigram make the book sparkle.
