New. 171 pages. The Dreyfus Affair, or simply L'Affaire, was the defining event in French life between the disasters of the Franco-Prussian War and the First World War. After decades of prosperity and growth following the Prussian invasion, the destruction of the Paris Commune and the seemingly successful creation of the Third Republic, the Affair cruelly exposed the bitter divisions within French society. The Affair tore apart the French army, forced ministers to resign, created quite new political groupings, led to an attempted coup and contributed to the paranoia that almost resulted in a catastrophic Anglo-French war in 1898. The scale and complexity of the Affair have resulted in numerous very large books on the subject, but there is a desperate need among students of Belle Époque France for a much shorter work that allows the Affair much more space than in the survey textbooks (and therefore allows it to be comprehensible), while being crisp enough to be read realistically during term. Dr Johnson's new book admirably fills this gap. Martin Johnson is Adjunct Professor of History at Northern Illinois University. Size: 8vo. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 250 grams.
