Description for Bookstore
A discussion of political ideas and models of Republicanism in modern France
Long Description
Modern French citizens tell powerful stories about their Republic. The idea of the centralized State has played a powerful role in shaping French republicanism since the French Revolution. But for two hundred years, many have tried to find other ways of being French and Republican. Alternative models of the Republic have been advanced from the centre, the centre-left and the far left. Whether inspired by Proudhon and the tradition of 'federal' socialism, or the liberals of the 1820s, these alternative models have mounted a sustained challenge to what is sometimes called 'Jacobinism' in France. But, as Pierre Rosanvallon has pointed out, the dominant narrative remains fixed in the minds of many. These essays, bringing together new work from leading scholars of French politics and ideas suggest a major new interpretation of French republicanism, pointing out that historians have an important job to do in reshaping these traditional accounts.
