This stimulating and insightful book reveals how increased control over immigration has changed cultural and social production in theater, literature, and even museum construction. Dominic Thomas's analysis unravels the complex cultural and political realities of long-standing mobility between Africa and Europe. Thomas questions the attempt to place strict limits on what it means to be French or European and offers a sense of what must happen to bring about a renewed sense of integration and global Frenchness.

Dominic Thomas is Professor of Comparative Literature and French and Francophone Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is author of Nation-Building, Propaganda, and Literature in Francophone Africa ( IUP, 2002) and Black France: Colonialism, Immigration, and Transnationalism (IUP, 2007).
"A hugely impressive piece of scholarship by a leading figure in the field of French Studies who has carved out a position over the past decade as perhaps the most authoritative voice in U.S. academia on relations between France and its former sub-Saharan African colonies."

—David Murphy, University of Stirling
"The work's versatility and multitudinal approach that encompasses literature, film, and museum exegesis as well as ethnographical analyses of contemporary French/Francophone societies illuminate important issues of Frenchness and national identity."
