The Social History of Politics
This book seeks to do three things; first, to formulate a cohesive national history of rural politics during a critical period, while respecting the specificities of regional structures and behaviour; secondly, to establish a different interpretation of the whole period of the Second Republic by placing the rural inhabitants of the mid-19th century France at the centre stage; and lastly, to give new light and perspective to the rural French history by giving comparative and theoretical work as well as case-studies on the field of rural studies. The book also discusses of the electoral geography and political makeup of rural France within a narrative framework.
