In over 700 alphabetical entries on key aspects of French culture since 1945, this groundbreaking work provides valuable in-depth information on topics which traditional reference works often neglect. Reflecting the growth of cross-disciplinary concerns, the encyclopedia covers fields such as film and media, sports, gender, food and wine, education, literature, technology, politics and linguistic issues. The entries include short biographies of influential figures such as Jacques Brel, Coco Chanel, and Francois Truffaut as well as brief factual pieces, major articles and overviews on subjects across the entire spectrum of contemporary French culture: Abortion, Advertising, Beur Cinema, Canal Plus, Francophone Press, Gay Activism, Green Politics, L'Equipe, Management Style, North Africa, "Paris-Match" and an inclusive range of other topics.
Special features include extensive cross-references, a comprehensive index and annotated suggestions for further reading at the end of major articles.
