The New Mediterranean Geopolitics

French military intervention in the Libyan civil war has prompted new thinking about French military policies and about international politics in the Mediterranean region.

Le Monde published a debate between several experts on Mediterranean culture and politics, including the historian Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie.  Find the Le Roy Ladurie’s piece here and the entire debate online at Le Monde.

Students in HIST 423 French Revolution and Napoleon, as well as students planning on taking my upcoming course HIST 458 Mediterranean World, may be interested in reading this debate.
