Todd Shepard, who teaches at Johns Hopkins University, devotes his research work to France and its colonial empire in the twentieth century. His first book, The Invention of Decolonization: The Algerian War and the Remaking of France (Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 2006), was translated into French as 1962. Comment l’indépendance algérienne a transformé la France (Paris: Payot, 2008). While preparing two new works— La France, le sexe et les Arabes, 1945 à 1979 and Affirmative Action and Empire: “Intégration” in France (1956-1962) and the Race Question in the Cold War World, he reexamines for us the supposed differences between the “French-style” republican view and the “American-style” communitarian view, thereby revealing a greater degree of complexity than might appear at first sight.
