It explains and sets in context all aspects of French politics, taking into account recent developments as well as the background and structure of the French political system. The main focus of the book is on the structure of power in France, looking at the Fifth Republic as a system of majority politics organized for and against the presidency. It examines principally the competition and coalition-building between parties for the presidency and the effect of this on political life in France.
