French History

Our class follows French history from the end of the Napoleonic Wars through WWII.  During this time period, France followed the following sequence of governments: Empire, Monarchy, 100 days Empire, Monarchy, Liberal Monarchy, Republic, Empire, Republic, Authoritarianism, and finally Republic.  For this great variance, France helps us to fulfill our goal of comparative government.  It's rare that you can so much with one country but France is perfect for it.
