A Small City in France book. A trained historian, Fran�oise Gaspard was born in Dreux and served as the city's socialist mayor from 1977 to 1983. She brings this experience to bear in her study, giving us an evocative picture of the town in all its particularity and at the same time fitting it into the broader context.

by Françoise Gaspard. The picturesque town of Dreux, 60 miles west of Paris, quietly entered history in 1821, when Victor Hugo won the hand of his beloved there. Another century and a half would pass before the town made history again, but this time there was nothing quiet about it. In 1983, Jean-Francois Le Pen's National Front candidates made a startling electoral gain in the Dreux region. Its liberal traditions had ended abruptly.

Francoise Gaspard, Eugen Joseph Weber, Arthur Goldhammer. With the radical right controlling the municipal council and the deputy mayor's office, Dreux became the forerunner.

It is a tour de force. Eugen Weber, author of My France. It’s an excellent book that unites the best in the sensibility of the Annales to the traditions of histoire historisante, of history as it has classically been defined

Only 6 left in stock (more on the way). It is a tour de force. It’s an excellent book that unites the best in the sensibility of the Annales to the traditions of histoire historisante, of history as it has classically been defined. This is disciplined and imaginative history. Corbin thinks innovatively, profoundly even, about the nature of the mob, its political and sociological situation, and about the political history of the region, its geography and its economy.

Gaspard, a historian and the one-time socialist mayor of the small town of Dreux, sets out to explain how the extreme-right National Front took control of the municipal council of Dreux in the 1980s. What follows is an insightful and provocative analysis of the failure of politics in an era of changing economic fortunes. There's much to learn here on patterns of immigration, town planning, and local politics. It is not beach reading, but should be considered essential for anyone who wants to understand the crisis of integration in France today.

I am astonished that this book might be the support material of a Harvard course...

First of all, there is a massive mistake on the backcover of the book "Jean-Francois Le Pen" is in fact "Jean-Marie Le Pen". It is such an obvious mistake - it looks like a joke !

But OK, let's admit it's only a translation mistake, it doesn't change the overall quality of the book.

Just to let you know, the author is part of the left side of the french left wing - She is a typical example of the generation of "soixante-huitard" french intellectuals, who use to support the maoism if not the stalinism.
