French Politics Today, New Edition Summary

French Politics Today, New Edition by David S. Bell

This review of the state of French politics at the beginning of the 21st century explains and sets in context all aspects of French politics, taking into account recent developments as well as the background and structure of the French political system. It focuses on the structure of power in France, looking at the Fifth Republic as a system of majority politics organised for and against the presidency. It also examines the competition and coalition-building between parties for the presidency and the effect of this on political life in France and looks at what has sustained the power of the French Presidency - which has failed to maintain its dominant position.
