Read full description of the books Le grandi famiglie:
In 1915 the futures of the Schoudler and La Monnerie families are joined with the marriage of François and Jacqueline. The children of this union will be called upon to shape France’s future; however, events seem to want to contradict the call of destiny. Old disagreements, confrontations between the families, ruthless fighting for money and power, and the tragedies that all these things provoke allow for ambitious people to occupy positions of privilege from which they were previously excluded.
En 1915 los destinos de las familias Schoudler y La Monnerie se unen con el matrimonio de François y Jacqueline. Los hijos de esta unión están llamados a regir el futuro de Francia; sin embargo, los acontecimientos parecen querer contradecir la llamada del destino. Las viejas rencillas, los enfrentamientos entre familias, las luchas despiadadas por el dinero y el poder y las tragedias que éstas provocan permiten que personajes cargados de ambición ocupen posiciones de privilegio que hasta entonces les estaban vedadas.

He was Minister of Cultural Affairs in 1973 and 1974 in Pierre Messmer's cabinet, and a deputy of Paris from 1978 to 1981.
