Carls publishes book in France
May 2, 2000 - Stephen D. Carls, University Professor of History and chair of the department, recently had his book on Louis Loucheur, an early twentieth-century French businessman who entered politics after World War I, published in France. The French book, titled Louis Loucheur: Ingénieur, homme d’état, modernisateur de la France, 1872-1931, is a revised version of a book that the Louisiana State University Press published in 1993 (Louis Loucheur and the Shaping of Modern France, 1916-1931). Emmanuel Chadeau, an eminent professor of contemporary history at the Université Charles de Gaulle - Lille III, wrote the book’s preface. Carls began research on Loucheur in 1976 and was pleased to see his efforts recognized with the release of the French publication in April, 2000. His wife, a translator and historian, translated the work from English into French.
