About the Author

Andrew Knapp is Professor of Politics at the University of Reading.


Reviews of the previous edition:'With any introductory text one is left with two questions: can I recommend it to students; should I read it myself? The verdict on Wright's book is 'Yes' on both counts. It is a spirited and intelligent introduction to the Fifth Republic which gets the tricky balance between factual grounding and analysis about right. Yet even the specialist on France will find the discussion of staple issues profitably cogent.' - Martin Harrison, Political Studies
