This work presents an overview and synthesis of recent writing on It examines the social, economic and strategic pressures - as well as the personalities - that helped to shape French policy, and sets France's predicament in the approach to 1939 in a broader and more satisfactory perspective than those studies that look solely to the 1930s for the origins of World War II. This book is designed to be of interest to students of history, international relations and politics.

'Adamthwaite skillfully mixes narrative with analysis, and integrates diplomatic history with political, economic, social, cultural and individual influences that ultimately shaped foreign relations. An excellent addition to undergraduate collections.' Choice 'Here is a responsible but absorbing account of a troubled moment in French history. This book richly deserves the broad readership which it seeks.' The Historian 'There are delightful pen portraits of politicians and diplomats such as Briand, Laval, Leger and Berthelot, and a gift for the witty phrase that makes the book a pleasure to read.'
