Gouverner (par) les finances publiques
Governing (via) Public Finance
KEYWORDS: POLICY - PUBLIC FINANCE - STATE – TAX POLICY - SOCIOLOGY OF PUBLIC FINANCES
Public finance is at the heart of both the functioning and debates of democratic societies, but they are rarely analyzed in terms of power, conflict between actors, negotiations, policy choices, constraints or resources for public action, and the relationship between governments and their citizens.
This work illuminates contemporary transformations of the State and of public action, marked by deficits, fiscal reform, fiscal spending ideologies, regulation, and the question of redistribution while examining several different areas, like defense, justice, healthcare, research, immigration, transportation, local government, diplomacy, and housing.
The authors: Phillippe Bezes is a Doctor of Political Science, Researcher at CNRS and an Instructor at Sciences Po. Alexandre Siné is Inspector of Finances, agrégé in economic and social science and doctor of political science.

La logique du désordre
Relire la sociologie de Michel DobryThe Logic of Chaos
Revisiting the sociology of Michel Dobry
How does the political order fall apart? What are crises made of, and how should they be explained? These questions are at the heart of Michel Dobry's book, La sociologie des crises politiques, originally published in 1986 and which has inspired researchers with its groundbreaking approach to revolutionary phenomena and political transitions.
