Challenging the notion that there was no "popular imperialism" in France, this book examines the importance of France's colonial role in the development of French society and culture after 1870. It assesses the impact of colonial propaganda on public attitudes and the relationship between imperialism, republicanism, and nationalism. It analyzes the representations of empire, traces the development of a colonial "science" and discusses the enduring importance of images and symbols of empire in contemporary France.

By extending our perspective to empire, this book widens our understanding of the Popular Front experience and shows that it represents an important watershed in French history, marking the beginning of an irreversible process of reform that was ultimately to lead to decolonisation and the end of empire.
