General knowledge – The newspaper

FRENCH LANGUAGE Florence Braunstein and Jean-François Pépin have undertaken to tell the whole story of the general culture in the form of a magazine of nearly 600 pages. Thanks to them, history, science, philosophy, the arts become clear, we understand everything, right away, and above all, we enjoy learning. This idea of devoting articles of all sizes to historical figures, major events, major trends of thought, essential artists and a thousand other subjects is completely new. As in a newspaper, “Culture générale le journal” includes in-depth articles, briefs, portraits, anecdotes, weather reports, classified ads, fashion news and new trends. As in a newspaper, you move from one subject to another according to your desires. As in a newspaper, each article goes to the heart of the matter. French language 592 pages Vuibert Publishing
