France is the most popular country in the world with foreign visitors. Each year millions of people arrive there to take delight in its landscapes, its extraordinarily rich history, its art and archit... ecture, its food and its wine. For many visitors, especially, perhaps, the British, the only difficulties lie with the people. The French, it is generally agreed, are either irritating or baffling or both. Theodore Zeldin?s book is an erudite but tongue-in-cheek guide to the French which will dispel any lingering Francophobia in the minds of those who read it. In chapters with titles like 'Why it is hard to meet an Average French Person?, 'How to understand what they are trying to say? and 'How to sympathise with them?, he unravels the mysteries of the French. This is a brilliantly sustained, readable and amusing cultural analysis which unlocks the door to the French mind and the French spirit.

These products are due for release on the date shown. Many books have a specific release date that we must comply with, so these titles are not available to purchase unless the release date has been reached, and stock has been delivered on time.

When we can, we dispatch your pre order on the evening before the product is released. Depending on your delivery address, these orders can be delivered the very next day.

We can discuss replacement or refund options, and will have the courier driver collect the damaged item and return it to us. Please Contact Us
