Discussion and debate, interpretation and re-interpretation, new angles of analysis and new theories to consider–all of these are vital to the scholarly enterprise.  H-France Forum encourages such activities by developing forums around recently published books.  A forum begins with four scholars offering their various responses to a specific book.  Afterwards, the book’s author responds to these reviews, taking the opportunity to further develop the books ideas and to defend the interpretive decisions made.  The result is a substantial investigation of new interpretations, methods, and theories.
