France's drift into world war and subsequent collapse have often been attributed to her level of confidence; either too much or too little. This book contends that these two moods were not mutually exclusive, that they co-existed throughout the interwar years, sustained by competing visions of the republic and of the best way to ensure national security.
Robert J. Young is Professor of History at the University of Winnipeg where he has taught history since 1968. He is the author of several books, including Power and Pleasure, Louis Barthou and the Third French Republic, and as editor, French Foreign Policy, 1918-1945: A Guide to Research and Research Materials.
