39. FROM THE REVOLUTION TO THE WAR WITH TERROR: A HISTORY OF MODERN FRANCE

Best-selling historian and political commentator Jonathan Fenby will provide a riveting account of France since 1789. Today’s France was born from revolution, a tumult which changed it forever but embedded tensions that can still be felt today. Based on fifty years of close observation, this talk will explore what makes France a country proud of its past but also a prisoner of its history.
