NED BERTZ University of Hawai‘i Histoire mondiale de la France. Edited by PATRICK BOUCHERON. Paris: Seuil, 2017. 790 pp. €29.00 (paper). A group of French scholars has offered a vigorous and, judging by the book’s library triumph and Alain Finkielkraut’s irate reaction to it, an effective and successful rebuttal to those who, in the Hexagon, have been loudly opposing the idea of a multicultural France. Delivering an engaging and eclectic work that splendidly speaks to France’s long- standing relations with the world, Patrick Boucheron and his confrères have produced in Histoire mondiale de la France a book that might very well put to rest the recurrent and divisive question of identity in France. Directed by Patrick Boucheron of the Collège de France, Histoire mondiale de la France is the collective effort of over a hundred scholars— most of whom are historians, but also anthropologists, archeologists, literary critics, and political scientists—who entice readers into a grand tour of French history.
