5A joyful and easy read
Par Amazon Customer
The book: it exists in French and English, a tribute to the author’s bilingualism and, especially, her bi-culturalism. Given the book’s universal sweep, its title should be, as in the French version, “The Americans in Paris”. Amusingly, a certain Albert Sutliffe beat the author to that title in 1887.The reviewer: an American happily installed in Paris for the last 25 years, French wife, dual nationality, with relatives having visited Paris as tourists starting in the 19th c., some staying longer to study or write.The author: a world class scholar (École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris), a specialist of migrations, lots of books and tons of articles, a beautiful writer in both French and English. She worked her way through school for 10 years as a paralegal for a Franco-American law firm in Paris, which gave her access to priceless source material for the book.The book is a joyful and easy read and also a copiously researched scholarly work. Ms Green has accessed literally all the archives and sources related to the book. She swims through them effortlessly, mixing anecdotes, facts and statistics for the delight of the reader.On the scholarly side, it contains 425 pages of text, 35 pages of dense footnotes and a 25 page bibliography. Chapt. 5 gets down to serious business and legal history. Some readers may end up skimming it.I can’t recommend it highly enough.
