Professor Julian Jackson's book in The New Yorker's best books of 2021

Published:

Emeritus Professor of Modern French History Julian Jackson's book on Charles De Gaulle features in The New Yorker's best books of 2021. 

Isaac Chotiner, writing for the publication describes the work: 'Jackson, with sublime prose and a sure grasp of the politics and personalities of the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Republics, never allows that argument to overshadow De Gaulle’s extremely difficult and domineering personality, and why it never entirely fit the democracy he helped rescue and then presided over.'

The full review of De Gaulle and the best books of 2021 can be read on The New Yorker website.
