The Oxford Handbook of French Politics, Hardback Book


The Oxford Handbook of French Politics provides a comprehensive and comparative overview of the French political system through the lens of political science.

The Handbook is organized into three parts: the first part identifies foundational concepts for the French case, including chapters on republicanism and social welfare; the second part focuses on thematic large-scale processes, such identity, governance, and globalization; while the third part examines a wide range of issues relating to substantive politics and policy, among which are chapters on political representation, political culture, social movements, economic policy, genderpolicy, and defense and security policy. The volume brings together established and emerging scholars and seeks to examine the French political system from a comparative perspective.

The contributors provide a state-of-the-art review both of the comparative scholarly literature and the study of the French case, making The Oxford Handbook of French Politics an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the foundations of contemporary political life in France.
