Synopsis

Normandy by Annie Lewis, Jeanine Picard

Thanks to its Viking heritage and strong historical links with Britain since 1066, Normandy is one of the French provinces that is most accessible to British students. Although the cultural unity of Normandy has survived into the modern era, politically it is now less easy to speak of a united province. Normandy now consists of two separate regions on the administrative map of modern France, Haute-Normandie and Basse-Normandie. Nevertheless, while still deriving much of its economic strength from traditional sources such as maritime trade, Normandy as a whole is increasingly in a position to exploit its proximity to Paris and European centres of decision making and economic power. This book is part of a series specifically designed to meet the needs of GCSE and A Level candidates studying a region of France as part of their course. It contains chapters on the history, identity, economy, politics and culture of the region, as well as its relationship with the rest of France.
