‘The editors’ aim to open up debate about the nature of political commitment in French and Francophone culture today is effectively served by this well-focused, interesting and incisive collection of essays. Engagement with the contemporary world and its power structures is shown to be a driving force across an impressively wide and varied range of institutional and cultural practices.’
-Professor Margaret Atack, University of Leeds

'Any of the essays would easily stand alone for research or classroom use, and undergraduate and graduate students alike would likely appreciate and benefit from exposure to the wide range of source material employed here.'
- Kathryn Kleppinger, The George Washington University, H-France Review
