Left in France
Towards the Socialist Republic
Edited By D.S. Bell & Eric Shaw
In the last year the attention of socialists all over Europe has swung towards France as the Left, following a long period of bitter division, finally gained power and started to implement its programme.
But, though many in Britain wish to follow the progress of Mitterrand and his Socialist Party in government, there is little understanding outside France of the nature of that party and of the other major party of the Left, the Communists.
This book provides an insight into the structures, ideas and forces at work in the French Left and the basis of a fascinating comparison with the fortunes of the Left in Britain. It also includes an assessment of the first year of Socialist government.
