State and Society: the Reactions of the Original French Population to Immigration
In France today, Bastenier describes how recent immigrants are not assimilating as completely as in the past, which is creating a crisis in the French national identity. He shows that the French feel all the more destabilized because they were used to consider their society as a "monument" that would erase all cultural differences.
