ABC-CLIO, 2005 - 1297 strani

A unique, multidisciplinary encyclopedia covering the impacts that French and American politics, foreign policy, and culture have had on shaping each country's identity.


From 17th-century fur traders in Canada to 21st-century peacekeepers in Haiti, from France's decisive role in the Revolutionary War leading to the creation of the United States to recent disagreements over Iraq, France and the Americas charts the history of the inextricable links between France and the nations of the Americas. This comprehensive survey features an incisive introduction and a chronology of key events, spanning 400 years of France's transatlantic relations.

Students of many disciplines, as well as the lay reader, will appreciate this comprehensive survey, which traces the common themes of both French policy, language, and influence throughout the Americas and the wide-ranging transatlantic influences on contemporary France.


  • Approximately 730 cross-referenced entries covering events and themes spanning 400 years of French influence in the Americas, from Canada to Guiana
  • Extensive bibliographies, over 80 illustrations, and essays from leading scholars from both sides of the Atlantic
  • Draws heavily on primary sources as well as the latest monographs and journal articles

Stran 4 - A space exists when one takes into consideration vectors of direction, velocities, and time variables. Thus space is composed of intersections of mobile elements. It is in a sense actuated by the ensemble of movements deployed within it.
Stran 558 - The book was the finest piece of imaginative writing yet put forth in the country. There was a consciousness of this in the welcome that was given it— a satisfaction in the idea of America having produced a novel that belonged to literature, and to the forefront of it. Something might at last be sent to Europe as exquisite in quality as anything that had been received, and the best of it was that the thing was absolutely American; it belonged to the soil, to the air; it came out of the very heart...
Stran 6 - Whether their experience of exile is enforced or chosen, temporary or permanent, these intellectuals and activists, writers, speakers, poets, and artists repeatedly articulate a desire to escape the restrictive bonds of ethnicity, national identification, and sometimes even 'race
Stran 421 - I have been trying to persuade Hawthorne to write a story, based upon a legend of Acadie, and still current there ; the legend of a girl who, in the dispersion of the Acadians, was separated from her lover, and passed her life in waiting and seeking for him, and only found him dying in a hospital, when both were old.
Stran 69 - Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, as is also the Federal Bureau of Entomology of the United States Department of Agriculture.
Stran 384 - Adventures of a Young Man (1939), Number One (1943), and The Grand Design (1948).
Stran 172 - Nouveaux Voyages aux Indes occidentales; Contenant une Relation des different Peuples qui habitent les environs du grand Fleuve...
Stran 560 - The Walls Do Not Fall (1944), Tribute To The Angels (1945) and The Flowering of the Rod (1946).
Stran 317 - The next wish of this traveller will be to know whence came all these people? they are a mixture of English, Scotch, Irish, French, Dutch, Germans, and Swedes. From this promiscuous breed, that race now called Americans have arisen.
Stran 316 - [c]reoleness is the interactional or transactional aggregate of Caribbean, European, African, Asian, and Levantine cultural elements, united on the same soil by the yoke of history
