A Brief History of Francetells the story of the formation of this grand nation through its people, great events, and culture. When we think of France we often evoke images of fine food and wine, the elegant boulevards of Paris, and the chic beaches of St. Tropez, but the largest country in Europe has much more to offer than tourist attractions.

Cecil Jenkins is an Ulsterman who studied at Trinity College Dublin, then at the prestigious Ecole Normale Sup�rieure in Paris, where he lived for six years. He has taught modern French literature and ideas at the universities of Exeter and Sussex - where he also served a term as Dean of European Studies. In addition to his books on French writers and a Brief History of France, Cecil has written a prize-winning crime novel, 2 stage plays and 2 plays for Radio 3. He is married and lives in London.
