This two volume set, consisting of period documents and numerous essays from various specialists, constitutes one of the most important contemporary scholarly works on Vichy France. Jean-Pierre Azema is the author of several prominent historical works; a specialist of World War II, and more specifically of the Vichy Regime and the French Resistance; lecturer of history at the Institut d'études politiques de Paris. He was also one of the historians called as witness for the trial of Maurice Papon, (alongside Marc-Olivier Baruch, Robert O. Paxton and Philippe Burrin) ; as well as one of the authors of the film L’Œil de Vichy (The eye of Vichy) by Claude Chabrol. François Bédarida (1926-2001) “was one of the best-known French historians in Britain. He wrote many books about English history and society; he taught from 1950-56 at the Institut Français in South Kensington; he was director of the Maison Française in Oxford (1966-70) ; he was the secretary general of the International Committee of Historical Science from 1990 until recently; he lectured at universities throughout Britain; and as the founder and director of Paris's Institut d'Histoire du Temps Présent from 1978-92, and subsequently, he wrote and edited many books and articles about the second world war and its effects on France, which are of the greatest interest to the British. Born in Lyons, but moving soon to Paris, where his father was professor of Italian at the Sorbonne, he studied at the Lycées Louis-le-Grand and Henri IV. As a student, the young Bédarida served in the Resistance and was associated with Témoignage Chrétien, the movement that was in the forefront of the attack on the evils of Nazism and anti-Semitism. ” (Obituary in the Guardian, 20 September 2001, written by Douglas Johnson) .
