Le vote des Français de Mitterrand à Sarkozy
French Voters' Choices From Mitterrand to Sarkozy
With a combined analysis of four presidential elections in 1988, 1995, 2002, 2007, the book presents a rigorous examination of the long and short-term motivations that have played a key role in French voters re-electing the Socialist François Mitterand in 1988 and bringing the right-wing candidate Nicolas Sarkozy to power in 2007. The authors portray a French electorate, the evolution of his views, his ideological orientations and choices.

Trajectoires politiques des municipalités françaises de 1983 à 2014Left-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.
