Villes de gauche, villes de droite
Trajectoires politiques des municipalités françaises de 1983 à 2014
Left-wing towns, right-wing towns Political trajectories of French municipalities from 1983 to 2014
This book analyses the results of a panel of 236 towns with more than 30,000 inhabitants, over a 30-year period (1983-2014). It investigates the local and national criteria liable to explain the success and defeat of candidates, whilst also demonstrating why certain incumbent municipal teams are systematically re-elected.
