The publication of this book commemorates the centenary of the signing of the Entente Cordiale, a key date in Anglo-French relations. Today, the Entente Cordiale has become the symbol of the constancy of Anglo-French relations and of the two nations common desire independently of their occasional differences to spread democratic values, human rights and the rule of law throughout the world. Sponsored by the Franco-British Council and published simultaneously in France and the U.K., this book brings together contributions by more than fifty British and French historians, politicians and journalists who have been active in maintaining this exceptional if sometimes stormy agreement between France and the U.K.
