The Mitterrand Experiment : Continuity and Change in Modern France
The Mitterrand Experiment takes a sober, detailed look at the successes and failures of Mitterrand's Socialist government in France. In a cohesive and penetrating set of essays by leading international experts in the field, the book analyzes a broad range of topics including: the macroeconomic policies of the Left; the politics of the private sector; the Left and the media; and the position of Left intellectuals. The essayists probe beneath the Left's claims that it was betrayed by "pro-capitalist" forces, and the Right's contention that the experiment turned out to be another example of the incompetence of Socialist government, and provide a unique, comparative study that will attract wide international debate.
