A peace to end all peace "[A] startling cultural history... A stark account of how we act when evil enters our door." - KIRKUS REVIEWS "A splendidly informed study of the Parisian cultural elite during the dark years. Riding places brilliant portraits of leading individuals in the context of clearly depicted French politics, alive to the moral drama of people facing extreme choices across fluid ideological lines. A study of ambiguities, including the varying conduct of German occupiers, of accommodation, betrayal, and human and patriotic decency. A book of trascendent relevance."- FRITZ STERN, author of Gold and Iron "In this highly readable book, Alan Riding presents a thorough, balanced account of the ways French artists and writers responded to Nazi occupation, ranging from active resistance to enthusiastic collaboration. Based on numerous interviews as well as published memoirs and diaries and the latest historical scholarship, this lively book will be of interest to specialists as well as to readers who wish to know more about that troubled period of French history. Riding marshals details with the verve and care of a great reporter."-SUSAN SULEIMAN, C. Douglas Dillon professor of the civilization of France and professor of comparative Literature, Harvard University "Engrossing...Rich in detail."-LIBRARY JOURNAL "Superb account of intellectuals under pressure, of how thought was married to action or, more frequently, inaction. A few heroes, a few villains and many in between. It's the in-betweens who seize our attention, those occupying a no-man's-land where resistance and collaboration dance a most delicate minuet. alan Riding, deeply versed in French politics and culture, is the ideal guide to Parisian life under the Nazis. He has written a wonderful book."-WARD JUST, Author of "An unfinished season and echo house ">

"Only someone as deeply versed in French culture as is Alan Riding, and as completely in command of his subject, could have written this magisterial account of France authors, artists, filmmakers and musicians during the occupation. It is star-studded and makes fascinating reading." - DAVID FROMKIN, author of "A peace to end all peace
