The ‘Conclusion’ summarizes what can be learned of post-Revolution France. The realities of modern France are more complex than nationalist pageants show. Power comes to those who unite people in and across a place. This is more true for France, as it lies at a real geographical crossroads. France has contributed to our understanding of both the human and the global condition. Since the Revolution, France has given us knowledge of diasporic communities, migration, rootlessness, and transnational culture mixing. In so many ways, France is a crossroads for all of us.
