Verdict on Vichy : power and prejudice in the Vichy France regime by Michael Curtis( Book )

25 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On May 10, 1940, Hitler's panzer divisions launched an offensive on their neighbors to the west, sweeping through the Low Countries and the Ardennes. Despite France's impressive army and parity in weaponry, by mid-June the Germans had occupied Paris. Days later, a new French government under Marshal Philippe Petain was formed, with its capital in Vichy. For the next four years France was first partially, and then fully, occupied by the Nazis. During that time, French officials and police cooperated with the policies of Nazi Germany, particularly in their treatment of France's 330,000 Jews, about a quarter of whom perished in Nazi death camps." "For decades, the official French line, by de Gaulle and others, held that Vichy France represented a small group of collaborators, not French society as a whole. What actually did happen during that fateful period, however, has been hard to assess, for many who collaborated later surfaced as prominent postwar figures in politics, business, and finance. The complex truth is now emerging, as the French government has finally accepted France's responsibility for the actions of the Vichy government, and long-suppressed files are being made public. In this book, Michael Curtis sets out to explore why - and how - people, groups, and institutions in France not only carried out the wishes and demands of the German occupiers but often, especially on the "Jewish question," exceeded them with a zeal that is shocking." "Curtis, a political scientist, uses up-to-date information and research to examine the degree to which ministers and officials of the Vichy regime, the legal and administrative system, the church, and individuals in different walks of life participated in discrimination against and persecution of Jews. He also assesses the extent of collaboration and accommodation with Nazi Germany, and the nature of the Vichy regime itself. Curtis draws upon the recent French government-sponsored reports of the complex "aryanization" process and the requisitioning of Jewish goods and property. His analysis, using this new information, addresses a number of subjects - the careers, indictments, and trials of some individuals for crimes against humanity committed during the war; the difficulties of the judicial system in reaching clear, unambiguous decisions on those indictments; and the ambivalent role of Vichy officials, including Francois Mitterrand, who belatedly forged links with or joined the Resistance."--BOOK JACKET

Through an historical analysis of the theme of Oriental despotism, Michael Curtis reveals the complex positive and negative interaction between Europe and the Orient. The book also criticizes the misconception that the Orient was the constant victim of Western imperialism and the view that Westerners cannot comment objectively on Eastern and Muslim societies. The book views the European concept of Oriental despotism as based not on arbitrary prejudicial observation, but rather on perceptions of real processes and behavior in Eastern systems of government. Curtis considers how the concept developed and was expressed in the context of Western political thought and intellectual history, and of the changing realities in the Middle East and India. The book includes discussion of the observations of Western travelers in Muslim countries and analysis of the reflections of seven major thinkers: Montesquieu, Edmund Burke, Tocqueville, James and John Stuart Mill, Karl Marx, and Max Weber
