"This book on French historians in the twentieth century with contributions by mostly Anglophone scholars is a delightful and substantial resource. Anyone interested in French history and historiography, expert and non-expert alike, will read it with relish, and any university library worth its salt will want to have it on its shelves. It truly is a lovely, sui generis project." (H-France Review, 1 August 2011)

"Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty." (Choice, 1 February 2011)
