France's liberation was expected to trigger a decisive break both with the Vichy régime and with the pre-war Third Republic. What happened, over three crucial years (1944-47), was an untidy patchwork of unplanned continuities and false starts - along with fresh departures that defined France's future for the next half-century. Prepared by an international team of specialists, The Uncertain Foundation analyses a complex process of regime change, economic renewal, social transformation, and adjustment to a fast-evolving world.
