A Dictionary of Contemporary France
Richard Aplin, Joseph Montchamp
Fitzroy Dearborn Publishers, 1999 - History - 488 pages
Fitzroy Dearborn is pleased to announce the first of a series of dictionaries on the contemporary milieu of the world's most important countries. These dictionaries are not tourist guides -- though tourists with a serious interest in countries they are visiting will find them of great help in learning more about these societies.These alphabetical reference guides have been compiled to give up-to-date information on all aspects of each country -- explanations of terms that are outside the scope of a standard dictionary or encyclopedia -- including acronyms, political and legal institutions, cultural phenomena, social welfare programs, industrial concerns, media, literary and political personalities, and much more.Each Dictionary has been compiled by two people -- a native of the individual country and an English-speaking collaborator from either Great Britain or the United States. Readers are thus assured of authoritative information that is rendered in terms comprehensible to English-language readers.,The Dictionaries will prove invaluable to researchers, librarians, and students.
