Every summer for vast numbers of holidaying British there is only one question that is reverted to over and over again: why are France and the French so odd? How can our near neighbour, who we share so much with and admire in so many ways, remain resolutely mysterious and, not infrequently, irritating? Rod Kedward has spent his entire adult life immersed in the study of France. He knows Paris intimately but is as much at home in the regions and the remote back country, la France profonde. He is fascinated by the great and often terrible dramas of modern France - the two cataclysmic wars, the Algerian disaster, the events of 1968 - but is equally obsessed with the special worlds of French family life, the workplace, immigration and leisure time. La Vie en bleu is the result of Kedward's obsessions - a book that is both definitive and completely fascinating.… (més)

Wonerfully readable general history of France, tracing the threads of clericalism, fascists, republicanism, monarchists, Drefusards and anti-Drefusards and their clashes across the years.

As someone whose history of Europe was filtered through a very Anglo lense, it's compelling and revealing to understand the degree to which the rise of Vichy was based itself on anti-Republican, anti-secular, anti-Dreyfusard movements over the last 40 years; the degree to which the pro-and anti-independence movements that formed around the Algeria question were a re-hash of that fight, or that even today the Le Pen family's historical involvement in precisely those areas informs their current politics.

This is a very erudite study of France since 1900, with more emphasis on the time after the First World War, than on the time before 1918. The study has much to commend it, but I would have liked a somewhat simpler narrative account about all the so interesting things in 20th century French historyIn other words, a somewhat more 'popular' book would have been more enjoyable.

As a historian of Vichy and the Resistance (perhaps the greatest myth of France's recent history), Kedward is sensitive to the conveniences of historical forgetfulness, to the partiality of storytelling and to how, at different points, the French political model has always worked by accommodating some and excluding others. His narrative is baggily inclusive, but it tracks more richly and consistently than previous general histories the shifting positions of women, regional identities, and colonial and immigrant groups within the Republic. Kedward's framing paradox is that while a unitary France is continually and loudly asserted--the Jacobin myth--France actually contains a plurality of histories, and it is "the resilience of a unitary state within a multiform and multilayered society that constitutes the singularity of France since 1900."
