Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. From the Publisher's blurb, "While European commerce in race was substantial, the colonial trade in ideas of race was highly profitable as well. Looking at official propaganda and commercial representations in France during the Third Republic, this book explores the way the French increased the value of their racial identity at home at the expense of their colonized brothers and sisters. The French did not create the identity-effacing stereotypes of Africans, Arabs, and Indochinese. Instead they refined or remolded these images, and as they did so they redefined and remolded their images of themselves. Focusing on world s fairs, colonial expositions, and mundane manufacturers trademarks, Races on Display shows not only the prevalence of racial stereotypes, but also how complex these representations prove to be." x + 215 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

20 Reynolds, Chris Memories of May '68: France's convenient consensus
Cardiff, Great Britain University of Wales Press, 2011 As New 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
A sterling condition trade paperback with tight binding, no markings, and minimal wear to the cover. Illustrated softpaper wraps. Virtually pristine interior. From the rear cover blurb: "For over forty years now, the French events of 1968 have been the focus of much attention both within France and beyond. While mai 68 is certainly seen as a watershed in the development of French society, a common narrative that portrays it in an increasingly reductive light has become prevalent. In fact it is less and less portrayed as the very serious nationwide crisis and largest strike in French history but more as a bon-enfant tantrum led principally by a spoilt generation of Parisian students intent on wreaking havoc during a period of much required - and today much longed for - political and economic stability. 2008 saw a continuation in the decennial commemorations that have been fundamental in shaping the doxa and thus furnished an excellent opportunity to assess any developments in how these events are represented, perceived and remembered. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
