Developments in French Politics Six offers the reader thirteen chapters that aim to understand the transformation and resistance in contemporary France. They compare President Macron with his immediate predecessor, François Hollande, to explore the limits of presidential authority. They bring readers up to date with the apparent collapse of traditional political parties and with the struggle of the French Republic to adapt to present day norms and trends. The book deliberately peers into thorny questions of religion, racial prejudice, radicalisation and sexual politics, with some surprising findings. Economic and international constraints on national sovereignty are exposed. The book’s authors each make original contributions drawn on new data and new thinking, and the editorial team brings together renowned experts in the matter of contemporary France.
