The primary emphasis is on Frances place in the world and on how efforts have been made to restore and then maintain claims to national greatness and elevated global standing. It also offers detailed examinations of various military interventions both multilateral as in the case of the Gulf and former-Yugoslavia and unilaterally as in sub-Saharan Africa. The text brings together the foreign policy and security policy dimensions that relate to Frances relations with the wider world, and Frances global ambitions which have been so much of a stimulus to French political elites during the Fifth Republic.
