Review Text

A turn-of-the-millennium look at the state of the French nation by one of its most assiduous chroniclers. Ardagh sees a France troubled by racism, unemployment and corruption, disillusioned with politics and apprehensive about the impact of the euro, but strangely buoyed up by a faith in the capacity of the nation to re-invent itself and a nation beside itself with delight at winning the World Cup in 1998.
