That Sweet Enemy: Britain and France: The History of a Love-Hate Relationship

Robert Tombs

Publisher: Vintage Books USA

Format: Paperback

“That Sweet Enemy ”brings both British wit (Robert Tombs is a British historian) and French panache (Isabelle Tombs is a French historian) to bear on three centuries of the history of Britain and France. From Waterloo to Chirac's slandering of British cooking, the authors chart this cross-channel entanglement and the unparalleled breadth of cultural, economic, and political influence it has wrought on both sides, illuminating the complex and sometimes contradictory aspects of this relationship—rivalry, enmity, and misapprehension mixed with envy, admiration, and genuine affection—and the myriad ways it has shaped the modern world.Written with wit and elegance, and illustrated with delightful images and cartoons from both sides of the Channel, “That Sweet Enemy ”is a unique and immensely enjoyable history, destined to become a classic.
