The Right in France explains what the Rightist tradition in France is, where it started and how it was developed in Frances’ long and complex history of political change. Beyond the narrative history of political ideas, it also looks at such issues as gender, empire, ethnicity, and race--the policy lynchpin of today’s Front National. Tracing the history of the Right from the revolution of 1789 to Le Pen today, it provides fascinating insights into Bonapartism, monarchism, the Dreyfus affair, the nature of French Fascism, Catholicism, the army, Vichy, and Gaullism.
