"A clear and didactic book" according to Glénat
The editor explains that it is "a clear and didactic book on the foundations of our Republic and what makes it a democracy". Editions Glénat is pleased that this book (64 pages, 15 euros), illustrated by the designer Laure Monloubou, was "written by a man who has exercised the highest office and who, through 40 years of local politics and national, has identified the expectations and misunderstandings of its fellow citizens. Throughout the pages, young readers will be able to discover what a country, a constitution or what have been the different political regimes since the French Revolution.
While waiting for the beginning of the year 2020, and the publication of this book, François Hollande will publish next Wednesday a short book of interviews titled Responding to the democratic crisis (Fayard / Terra Nova).
