Will French mainstream political parties and republican institutions survive extreme religious and racist movements on the right and left in the future? This short political history of France since the 1960s examines the impact of student revolts, the fall of the Berlin Wall, Algerian fundamentalists, and demographic and generational changes to define critical issues at the center of political debate in France today. Political scientists, historians, scholars in French studies, business people concerned with France, and general readers will benefit from this analysis of the contemporary French political scene.
