Un maire à Paris
Mise en scène d'un nouveau rôle politique
A Mayor of Paris
Since 1977 Jacques Chirac embodied the new function of the Parisian Mayor. How did he shape this, and how did this alchemy between a political figure, the office of mayor entrenched French political culture, and a city of such unique characteristics operate? Moreover, which mechanisms did he use to create his political role? This work leans on multiple affairs and traits of a decisive part of French history.
