Through hundreds of photographs and documents never before or rarely seen, Collaboration and Resistance offers an unprecedented view of life in France during the German occupation in World War II. Plumbing an archival source that only recently has begun to yield its secrets, the authors have gathered an astonishing collection of photographs, posters, newspaper pages, and leaflets-most from the Vichy government's Office of Propaganda-covering every aspect of life under Vichy rule. \nCommentaries by eight distinguished French historians squarely confront an uncomfortable time in their nation's past: the oppressive German presence, the Vichy government's uneasy alliance with both Germany and domestic ultraright-wing groups, and the heroic defiance of the Resistance. With its stunning graphic images, Collaboration and Resistance presents an incomparably vivid portrait of this important slice of history. \n300 black-and-white photographs, 9 1/2 x 11" \nJEAN-PIERRE AZMA, YVES DURAND, ROBERT FRANK, and PASCAL ORY teach at various universities in France; JACQUELINE EICHART created the photo archive of the French government's Documentation Franaise; DENIS MARCHAL is historic adviser to the Mmorial museum in Caen; DENIS PESCHANSKI and DOMINIQUE VEILLON are members of the Institut d'Histoire du Temps Prsent of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique.
