Preface by Janine Mossuz-Lavau
Vote for me !
Based on field-work carried out in the heart of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, this work by Yves Pourcher takes the reader backstage in several elections using the format of a detailed ongoing chronicle including dates and places. This analysis of election campaigns seen from within, details the political path of first UDF and then UMP candidate, Jacques Blanc, and in particular his face-to-face with Georges Frêche, Mayor of Montpellier, his relations with the Front National and the daily life of a campaigning politician. This ethnologist's study invites the reader to plunge into the reality of elections.
