Summary

"This is an outstanding book--historical sociology and social history at its most original. Richly documented and drawing on a wide range of materials to produce the most incisive reading I've seen of this moment in French history, "Vichy and the Eternal Feminine" is a model for historical studies of the formation and construction of social and political identity."--Joan Scott, author of "Only Paradoxes to Offer: French Feminists and the Rights of Man"
