With its strong Celtic roots, Breton language and religious zeal, Brittany has often seemed to the rest of the French nation an enigma and sometimes a threat. This text examines these traditions in detail and assesses their relevance for an understanding of Brittany today.;Brittany is now successfully integrated into the modern French state and has survived the amputation of one of its five Departments. In the competitive climate of the European Union, it has fought to preserve its traditional sources of income, such as fishing, farming and tourism. At the same time it has ventured into others, including food processing and high-tech electronic engineering.;This book is one of a series designed to meet the needs of GCSE and A Level candidates studying a region of France as part of their course. Each title contains chapters on the history, identity, economy, politics and culture of the region, as well as its relationship with the rest of France.
