The Extreme Right in France, 1789 to the present : From de Maistre to Le Pen
The Extreme Right in France, 1789 to the Present surveys the history of a fascinating but contentious political and intellectual tradition. Since 1789 the far right has been an important factor in French political life and in different eras has taken on a range of guises including traditionalism, ultra-royalism, radical nationalism, anti-Semitism and fascism.
This book is structured around the five main phases of extreme right activity, and the author explores key questions about each:
* Counter-revolution - what was the legacy of Joseph de Maistre's writings?
* Anti-Third Republic protest - how was the ''new right'' of the 1880s and 1890s different from the ''old right'' of previous decades?
* Inter-war fascism - how should we characterise the phenomenon of fascisme fran�aise?
* Vichy - why did P�tain and Laval collaborate with the Nazis?
* the Post-war far right - what is the relationship between Poujadism, Alg'erie Fran,caise and Le Pen's FN?
The Extreme Right in France, 1789 to the Present provides the key to an understanding of this vivid and long-standing feature of France's political history, with its amazing ability to reinvent itself and to appeal anew to important sections of the French population.
