Synopsis

"Starting from well-publicized controversies such as the bicentennial of the French Revolution, the 1989 Affair of the Veil, and the more recent Sokal Affair, Jean-Philippe Mathy looks at how each national tradition has represented the other, and how different conceptions of liberalism, democratic pluralism, and republicanism figure in these representations. This book argues that the two countries face similar challenges and mobilize comparable, if not identical, philosophical and political resources when it comes to closing the gap between their republican-democratic principles and national histories of persecution of individuals and groups on the basis of ethnicity, religion, national origin, and past colonial status."
