Roots of a Far-Right Affinity in Contemporary France

John W.P. Veugelers

Oxford Studies in Culture and Politics

  • Puts the contemporary far right in France in deep historical perspective to show what led to its victory, what it did in office, and how mainstream politicians have fought back
  • Anchors its explanation in local politics in Toulon and exploits the rare opportunity of examining a city under the far right
  • Combines cutting-edge approaches in cultural studies, sociology, and political science
