Description: How do nations remember their past? How do certain historical figures, events, and objects become the common stock of memory that is recognizable as a cultural heritage? How do human societies leave the mark on the world so they are not forgotten?

A monumental collective endeavor by France's leading intellectuals, "Realms of Memory" explores the statues, cathedrals, and palaces, the rituals, legends, and events of history that form the architecture of the French collective consciousness. More than a linear inventory of critical moments in the history of France, it is an evocative meditation on how the French have constructed their past through symbols allusions, and associations.

Enriched by 140 illustrations, "Realms of Memory" juxtaposes the greatest accomplishments of France's history with aspects of its cultural identity, from revolution to gastronomy, from the grand palace of Versailles to the Tour de France. In this first of three volumes to be published by Columbia, the contributors reflect on the political, religious, and geohistorical oppositions that structure France's cultural memory.
