Our selection of history books


History is the favorite subject of the French. But what is history? Patrick Boucheron, historian and professor at the Collège de France gives a marvelous definition of what history is, an endless story: "So we must at the same time claim a never-ending story - because always open to what makes it overflows and transports it - and without purpose. A story that we could go right through, freely, cheerfully, visit in all its possible places, desire, like a body offered to the caresses, so to stay in motion ”.
