This was a good introduction to the Dreyfus Affair and the impact it had on the French Republic at the turn of the 20th Century. The book is a short narrative of the affair. Hinted at, but not developed, are all of the political, social and cultural themes that were tied up in the affair and the implications for European society over the next 40 years. This book wet my appetite to read a more complete history.

Please let me know if you have a recommendation of what to read next.
