Book review

The year 1998 marked the fiftieth anniversary of Yale French Studies. Taking this occasion to look back on the evolution of the journal and, by extension, on the field of French studies over the past half-century, the Editorial Board of YFS is producing a two-volume commemorative anthology. The selected articles reflect scholars and themes that either represent or run counter to the main trends of a vibrant scholarly tradition during an intellectually exciting period.

The prefaces to this first volume of the anthology and the introductions to each decade add a retrospective glance at the role that Yale French Studies has played over the years.
