Terror and terroir

The winegrowers of the Languedoc and modern France

First Edition

Andrew W. M. Smith

Published by Manchester University Press

Studies in Modern French History MUP

  • New in paperback
  • Explores the wine world, traditionally framed in a discourse of leisure and high culture, as a vibrant and violent political arena where activism and militancy are widespread
  • Unpicks the association of winegrowers and the Occitan movement, looking at regionalism in France and its links with other minority nationalist movements
  • Contextualises peasant protest with anti-globalisation movements
  • Accounts for political, cultural and social change at the margins of the French state, defining the limits of modernisation in France's periphery
