Advanced French Grammar

Author: Monique L'Huillier
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521484251
Release Date: 1999-06-17
Genre: Foreign Language Study

This 1999 reference grammar, written for advanced students of French, their teachers, and others who want a better understanding of the French language, combines the best of modern and traditional approaches. Its objective is not only practical mastery of the language, but familiarity with its structure. Taking into account modern linguistic research, Advanced French Grammar approaches the French language primarily through the study of syntactic structures, but without excessive emphasis on formalism. It provides a generous number of examples, based on the author's own experience of teaching French to English-speakers, to help the student to understand the different meanings of apparently similar syntactic alternatives. The norms of 'correct expression' are given together with current usage and deviations, and appendixes provide information on the 1990 spelling reforms and on numbers. A substantial index of French and English words and of topics provides easy access to the text itself.

Revolution

Author: Emmanuel Macron
Publisher: HarperCollins
ISBN: 9789352774227
Release Date: 2017-11-25
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

It was a French election the world watched with anxiety in 2017. There was a wave of populism, fierce nationalism and anti-immigration angst sweeping across Europe and America - from Britain's unanimous vote to exit the European Union to the divisive election of Donald Trump in the US. Many feared that France too would concede to the aggressive right-wing phenomenon by electing Marine Le Pen, the leader of a far-right party that had for long been on the fringes of French politics. And so the victory of Emmanuel Macron - investment banker-turned-politician who had never held elected office before - was celebrated with a sense of relief. His message of openness, optimism, reform and hope had as much resonance in India as the rest of the world. The Guardian called his win an 'epochal political upheaval' not witnessed since the French Revolution of 1789. In Revolution, Emmanuel Macron, the youngest president in the history of France, reveals his personal history and his inspirations, and discusses his vision of France and its future in a new world that is undergoing a 'great transformation'. This is a remarkable book that seeks to lay the foundations for a new society - a compelling testimony and statement of values by an important global political leader who has become the flag-bearer for a new kind of politics - evocative in its scope, ambition and vision of Barack Obama's The Audacity of Hope.
