Item Description...
The practice of singing and songwriting in France during the Great War provides an intriguing tool for the exploration of the French cultural politics of the epoch. Responding to the dearth of cultural studies of the First World War, Regina Sweeney's unique cross-disciplinary study illuminates many of the hitherto unexplored corners of an era that many historians consider to exhibit a break with recognizable trends.

In early twentieth century Europe, singing was considered a part of education integral to the formation of good citizens. Singing was especially important to the French, for whom it was historically associated with authenticity of feeling and purity of character, and thereby with the very roots of French democracy; it was particularly associated with the image of France as a victorious nation. But as Sweeney shows, different performances of the same patriotic song could carry vastly different meanings. By focusing on singing, Sweeney is able to provide a more nuanced reading of French Great War cultures than ever before, and to show that cultures previously held to be exclusive -- those of the home front and the Western front, for example -- existed in dialectical tension and were themselves far from homogenous.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Absolutely wonderful.  Jan 12, 2008
I bought this book in order to be able to write my senior high school history paper on the extent to which the public opinions of WWI were reflected in the songs written and sung in France during that time. Needless to say, this book was the only thing that made that paper possible. I couldn't have asked for a more well-researched, well-supported book, that was not only informative, but also written in a way which kept it interesting. I only wish I could have spent more time with it, instead of racing through so as to finish my paper by the deadline. A highly recommended read to anyone.
Absolutely Amazing  Dec 5, 2003
There is not enough I can say about Regina Sweeney's book. It is absolutely ineffable in every sense. The depth of topic and research involved is astounding to any scholar. I highly suggest this book to anyone. It was a most enjoyable and enlightening read!!
Writing Our Way to a Great Book  Apr 1, 2001
Sweeney has struck gold in the minefield that was World War I. Terrific scholarship! Her thesis is novel: her research impeccable. The book captures the reader from page one and never lets go.
