France Votes The Election Of Fran Ois Hollande from the Author: I. Wall. France Votes analyzes the French elections of 2012 in the context of a France and Europe in crisis. With regard to the economy, Irwin Wall describes the ways in which the country's adherence to the common currency in the Eurozone has stripped France of its freedom of manouver. France Votes shows how a European-wide economic crisis was reflected in political crisis at home and the rise of new political extremism combined with mass disaffection from politics altogether. The result of all of this, posits Wall, is that France has become a no-choice democracy.

The Extreme Right In France from the Author: James Shields. A comprehensive new historical study of the extreme right in France, from the Vichy regime to the present day. The Front National has for some years been France's third political party and the most significant extreme-right force in Europe; its leader, Jean-Marie Le Pen, contested the second round of the 2002 presidential election with 5.5 million votes. This wide-ranging and authoritative book examines the resurgence of right-wing extremism in France from a historical perspective, tracing the political lineage of Le Pen and the FN through key figures and movements on the French extreme right since 1940. Part 1 devotes chapters to the Vichy regime, the aftermath of the Occupation, the Poujadist movement, the Algerian War, the ‘Nouvelle Droite’, and extreme-right ideology and activism in the 1960s and 1970s. Part 2 analyzes the electoral rise of the FN, its evolving programme and exploitation of salient issues, the geography and sociology of its electorate, its exercise of local power, and its impact on national political culture in contemporary France. The FN, it is argued, represents both the latest manifestation of a long tradition of right-wing radicalism and a complex new phenomenon within the changing social and political dynamics of France today. This is an essential book for all readers with an interest in French and European politics and modern history.

A Line In The Sand from the Author: James Barr. In 1916, in the middle of the First World War, two men secretly agreed to divide the Middle East between them. Sir Mark Sykes was a visionary politician; François Georges-Picot a diplomat with a grudge. The deal they struck, which was designed to relieve tensions that threatened to engulf the Entente Cordiale, drew a line in the sand from the Mediterranean to the Persian frontier. Territory north of that stark line would go to France; land south of it, to Britain. The creation of Britain's 'mandates' of Palestine, Transjordan and Iraq, and France's in Lebanon and Syria, made the two powers uneasy neighbours for the following thirty years. Through a stellar cast of politicians, diplomats, spies and soldiers, including T. E. Lawrence, Winston Churchill and Charles de Gaulle, A Line in the Sand vividly tells the story of the short but crucial era when Britain and France ruled the Middle East. It explains exactly how the old antagonism between these two powers inflamed the more familiar modern rivalry between the Arabs and the Jews, and ultimately led to war between the British and French in 1941 and between the Arabs and Jews in 1948. In 1946, after many years of intrigue and espionage, Britain succeeded in ousting France from Lebanon and Syria, and hoped that, having done so, it would be able to cling on to Palestine. Using newly declassified papers from the British and French archives, James Barr brings this clandestine struggle back to life, and reveals, for the first time, the stunning way in which the French finally got their revenge.

Une Autre France from the Author: Hervé Le Bras. Pourquoi le pays des Droits de l'homme a-t-il pu donner à son extrême droite la moindre chance d'accéder aux plus hautes responsabilités de l'État? Pourquoi ce même pays, alors que nulle part ailleurs le marxisme ne trouve plus le moindre écho, peut-il accorder tant de crédit à son extrême gauche trotskiste ? Ces questions en soulèvent une autre, beaucoup plus radicale: Comment vote-t-on ?Comment chacun de nous décide-t-il quel homme ou quel parti choisir? Quels événements petits ou grands nous motivent-ils? À quel réseau d'influence est-on rattaché? À partir d'une cartographie électorale, économique et sociale des 36 565 communes de France, Hervé Le Bras apporte une interprétation profondément originale de la nouvelle donne politique française. Non, nous ne votons pas en fonction de notre sexe, ni de notre appartenance sociale, de nos diplômes, de notre état civil ou de notre âge ! Alors, comment vote-t-on ? La réponse est dans les cartes.

Does France Still Count from the Author: Steven Philip Kramer. France's political leaders have been deeply committed both to maintaining France's independence and to asserting its leadership role in Europe. The end of the Cold War, the demise of the Europe of Yalta, as well as the unification of Germany, have forced France to rethink its European and international strategies. The purpose of this study is to analyse France's effort to redefine its role in the post-Cold War era and in an integrated Europe, and what that redefined role might mean to France, to Europe and to the United States. In examining France's international role after the Cold War, Steven Philip Kramer seeks to answer the question, does France still count?

Developments In French Politics 4 from the Author: Alistair Cole. The presidential election of 2007, which propelled Nicolas Sarkozy into the Élysée Palace, was arguably the most important for a generation. Sarkozy's victory was seen as opening a new political era, as he replaced Jacques Chirac at the forefront of French politics. Developments in French Politics 4 takes stock of the Chirac years, gives an account of the changed political scene, and makes accessible the latest analysis of contemporary French politics. Written by a team of leading authorities from France, the USA, the UK and beyond, this volume provides a systematic assessment of the French political system, from the central institutions and organizations through to key policies and issues. It addresses the main challenges in contemporary politics and the administration's response. Globalization, gender, immigration and culture all come under the microscope, as do traditional concerns such as economic, welfare and foreign policy. Arguing that reform went further under Chirac than is commonly acknowledged, the chapters together provide state of the art coverage of French politics and an assessment of the degree of continuity and change – institutionally, structurally and behaviourally – between Chirac and Sarkozy. ALISTAIR COLE is Professor of European Politics at Cardiff University, UK. PATRICK LE GALÈS is Research Professor in Politics and Sociology at Sciences Po, at the Centre for Political Research (CEVIPOF) and the National Centre of Scientific Research. JONAH LEVY is Associate Professor of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley, USA.
