Sociologie plurielle des comportements politiques
Je vote, tu contestes, elle cherche...
The Many-Faceted Sociology of Political Behaviour
I vote, you protest, she's still looking...
The simultaneous rise of abstention and far-right parties, the emergence of engaged consumerism and new forms of mobilisation by ethnic minorities, the role of national identity and community organisations in democratic life... political sociology is now faced with the challenge of explaining how so many different forms of politicisation are maintained or transformed.
Throughout her career, Nonna Mayer has taken up this gauntlet by combining intellectual openness with methodological rigour.
In homage to the pluralist political sociology practiced and defended by this French pioneer of experimental survey research, this volume provides an up-to-date overview of current research and major controversies in this field of political science today, thus also serving as an introduction to the analysis of political behaviour.
