A challenging but worthwhile book -- those patient enough to wade through it will be rewarded. Indexed, with extensive notes, good bibliography, and fine colored illustrations. * Choice, Vol. 48, No. 04 * It is the level of sheer interest aroused by Marshall's descriptions - particularly of previously underdocumented areas such as the very significant French immigration to Uruguay, the role of Saint-Pierre et Miquelon during prohibition in the USA, or the interaction between slaves and French convicts in Cayenne - that fully vindicates the book's commitment to opening up a new perspective both on the French Atlantic and on cultural history more generally. * French Studies * ...this study combines geography, history, demographics, language, culture, literature and film to provide a unique perspective on the ways in which francophonie has been constituted in difference outside the French mainland. It deserves a place wherever `French Studies' is taught or archived. * JICS, 32(1) * This compelling book is a timely addition to the growing corpus of schol-arship on the cultural links between France and America ...Bill Marshall's The French Atlantic is a very impressive achievement. Its sheer richness - which of course cannot be fully conveyed here - forces us to rethink the boundaries between French, Francophone, African and American cultures. It is an indispensable book. * International Journal of Francophone Studies * The French Atlantic: Travels in Culture and History is nonetheless a fascinating and thorough exploration of key identities and spaces within the French Atlantic. * The Kelvingrove Review * In The French Atlantic: Travels in Culture and History, Bill Marshall has produced a truly original and very engaging book that will be of great interest to readers in French, Francophone, and Atlantic Studies. This study is unique, quirky, and stimulating. Christopher L. Miller
