Marketing Marianne : French propaganda in America, 1900-1940 by Robert J Young( )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although historians have written extensively about propaganda during Napoleon III's regime and Vichy, they have virtually ignored the Third Republic. Focusing on Third Republic policies, Marketing Marianne examines how the French sought to influence American foreign policy in the early twentieth century." "Robert J. Young argues that the French used subtle but effective means to sway U.S. policy in Europe. He examines French propaganda efforts and the methods of the French Foreign Ministry, always highlighting the wider cultural and social context of Franco-American relations."
An American by degrees : the extraordinary lives of French ambassador Jules Jusserand by Robert J Young( )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The expressions of American hostility toward France after 9/11 are not new - Franco-American relations in the early twentieth century were also difficult, characterized by the same antagonistic depictions of the other's culture. Ambassador Jules Jusserand's years in Washington (1903-24) were defined by efforts to correct such misconceptions, whether they came from the venomous pens of French extremists or from members of William Randolph Hearst's press empire

France and the origins of the Second World War by Robert J Young( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Young first describes the tensions within French interwar diplomacy as well as the interpretive tensions which have characterised the scholarly debate over the past fifty years. Subsequent chapters explore the roots of the national ambivalence: diplomatic and military, political and ideological, economic and psychological. In the end, we are left with the author's explanation of how France entered the second World War, and why she collapsed so quickly
In command of France : French foreign policy and military planning, 1933-1940 by Robert J Young( Book )

Under siege : portraits of civilian life in France during World War I( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume offers a new and original perspective that shows the reader the civilian side of this protracted and destructive war through a succession of "snapshots": 130 excerpts from leading American and Canadian newspapers provide a collective portrait of life behind the battle lines, what is often called the "second" front. Written principally by Paris-based journalists, and intended for popular reading audiences, these articles depict ordinary people in a way that still touches the reader of today. They record eye-witness testimony of Paris under aerial bombardment, the gutted cathedrals at Reims and Arras, the cemeteries around Compiegne, the subterranean living quarters at Cambrai, and the heart-breaking orphanages at Chambly."
An uncertain idea of France : essays and reminiscence on the Third Republic by Robert J Young( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here in one volume, historian Robert J. Young has assembled ten of his previously published essays on France in the 1920s and 1930s, in such a way as to offer an interpretive overview of the contentious Third Republic. An Uncertain Idea of France provides a perspective which emerges from analysis of materials as disparate as French military doctrine and strategic planning, elite and popular mentalites, social biography and cultural propaganda, combined with the author's personal reminiscences about where and how his own past has intersected with the past of interwar France"--Jacket
France and the origins of the Second World War by Robert J Young( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

France's drift into war and subsequent collapse have often been attributed to her level of confidence. Either she had too much, or too little. This work contends that these two moods were not mutually exclusive, that they coexisted throughout the interwar years, sustained by competing visions of the Republic and of the best way to ensure national security. Early chapters describe the tensions within French interwar foreign policy, as well as the ensuing historiographical tensions among scholars intent on interpreting the French experience. Subsequent chapters explore tensions in defence and economic policies, domestic politics and ideological allegiance, public attitudes and opinion
Another spy for Paris by Robert J Young( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While Canadian history professor Andrew Stanhope is doing research in Paris on the German invasion of France in 1940, he stumbles upon an odd and long-lost exchange between Colonel Marius Michel, principal deputy in France's counter-intelligence agency, the Deuxième Bureau, and the Directeur-Général of the Val de Grâce military hospital. The Colonel wants the Directeur to warn the incoming Prime Minister, Philippe Pétain, that there is an active spy in the French war ministry and that the Marshal's own ring of advisors includes at least one Nazi sympathizer; their espionage may have led to the sudden and ignominious defeat of France."--
