The Republic of De Gaulle covers the momentous eleven-year ascendancy of Charles de Gaulle as President of the newly established Fifth Republic. Serge Berstein analyzes important constitutional, political and socio-economic changes and De Gaulle's remarkable foreign policy. He concludes with an examination of De Gaulle's eventual fall, with an entire chapter on 1968. The work contains all the standard features that have helped this series to establish itself as the premier multivolume account of modern France.
"...detailed and comprehensive account of de Gaulle's Republic..." Douglas Johnson, Times Literary Supplement
