Chroniques électorales 2, Les scrutins politiques en France de 1945 à nos jours
Vol. 2: La Cinquième République du général de Gaulle
Hère, at last collected in three volumes, are the classic analyses of each of the French postwar élections and referenda which François Goguel had published in various journals and symposia. The three volumes — Vol. I deals with the Fourth Republic, Vol. II with the Fifth from 1958 to 1969 and Vol. III with the Fifth after de Gaulle — are an indispensable référence tool, the only work which provides full data on élections and voting behavior in postwar France. But François Goguel does not only présent data : in his double rôle as political scientist and practitioner, he considers the effects of voting Systems, political cleavages, and voting behavior factors, that is, the contradiction between the effects of immédiate political conditions and political culture for each élection and its relation to the other élections. Thus through and beyond élections, François Goguel présents a genuine political history of France under the Fourth and the Fifth Republics.
