Product Overview

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 franAaise?
* Vichy - why did PA(c)tain and Laval collaborate with the Nazis?
* The Post-war far right - what is the relationship between Poujadism, AlgA(c)rie FranAaise and Le Pen''s FN?
