Political traditions in modern France by Sudhir Hazareesingh( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Political Traditions in Modern France offers an introduction to the modern French political system which differs from the narratives of conventional textbooks. It is an engaging account of the forces which have shaped political argument and practice in France since 1789. Its primary focus is the relationship between ideologies and political movements explored from a broad historical perspective. A critical examination of important features of French public life, including the nature of republicanism, nationalism, religion, and the role of intellectuals, provides the general setting for accounts on peace movements, and the political traditions of liberalism, socialism, gaullism, and communism." "Rather than seeing France's political history as a process of rupture and fragmentation, this book emphasizes the elements of continuity, arguing in particular that ideology has often played a key role in bringing together parties and movements from different political horizons. It also highlights the role of ideas in the French political process and stresses the influence of history in shaping lines of political division." "Written in a clear and accessible style, the book will be invaluable to students of nineteenth- and twentieth-century French history, politics, and government. In addition it offers a general framework for thinking about the role of ideas in politics and will be of great relevance to courses on ideologies."--Jacket
From subject to citizen : the Second Empire and the emergence of modern French democracy by Sudhir Hazareesingh( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Subject to Citizen offers an original account of the Second Empire (1852-1870) as a turning point in modern French political culture: a period in which thinkers of all political persuasions combined forces to create the participatory democracy alive in France today. Here Sudhir Hazareesingh probes beyond well-known features of the Second Empire, its centralized government and authoritarianism, and reveals the political, social, and cultural advances that enabled publicists to engage an increasingly educated public on issues of political order and good citizenship. He portrays the 1860s in particular as a remarkably intellectual decade during which Bonapartists, legitimists, liberals, and republicans applied their ideologies to the pressing problem of decentralization. Ideals such as communal freedom and civic cohesion rapidly assumed concrete and lasting meaning for many French people as their country entered the age of nationalism

In the shadow of the general : modern France and the myth of De Gaulle by Sudhir Hazareesingh( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles De Gaulle's leadership of the French while in exile during World War II cemented his place in history. In contemporary France, he is the stuff of legend, consistently acclaimed as the nation's pre-eminent historical figure. But paradoxes abound. For one thing, his personal popularity sits oddly with his social origins and professional background. Neither the Army nor the Catholic Church is particularly well-regarded in France today, as they are seen to represent antiquated traditions and values. So why, then, do the French nonetheless identify with, celebrate, and even revere this austere and devout Catholic, who remained closely wedded to military values throughout his life? The Shadow of the General resolves this mystery and explains how de Gaulle has come to occupy such a privileged position in the French imagination. Sudhir Hazareesingh's story of how an individual life was transformed into national myth also tells a great deal about the French collective self in the twenty-first century: its fractured memory, its aspirations to greatness, and its manifold anxieties. Indeed, alongside the tale of de Gaulle's legacy, the author unfolds a much broader narrative: the story of modern France."--Publisher's website
The legend of Napoleon by Sudhir Hazareesingh( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and French and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book opens with an account of the breathtaking events of 1815 - the 'Hundred Days' - when Napoleon returned from exile and swept back to power without firing a single shot, thus laying the foundations of his posthumous legend: the return of the national hero and saviour. The Legend of Napoleon traces the emergence of the Napoleonic myth in nineteenth-century France, and shows how it developed into a potent political culture - notably through the ways in which political and intellectual elites were captivated by Napoleon's legacy, and sought to harness it for their own ideological purposes." "But the book also describes the extraordinary tenacity of popular affection for the emperor, from the shrines in ordinary citizens' homes, to miraculous posthumous apparitions, and the memories of imperial war veterans. The legend also inspired French citizens to engage in a range of 'subversive' political activities, challenging their rulers in the name of the values of freedom and popular sovereignty." "Capturing the drama and poignancy, but also the humorous and festive aspects of Napoleonic memory in France, this book is a timely study of the enduring fascination of Napoleon, and of the creative role of myths in modern French politics."--BOOK JACKET
The Saint-Napoleon : celebrations of sovereignty in nineteenth-century France by Sudhir Hazareesingh( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on a wealth of archival evidence, Sudhir Hazareesingh vividly reconstructs the symbolic richness and political complexity of the Saint-Napoleon festivities in a work that opens up broader questions about the nature of the French state, unity and lines of fracture in society, changing boundaries between public and private spheres, and the role of myth and memory in constructing nationhood. The state's Bonapartist identity was at times vigorously contested by local social, political, and religious groups. In various regions, people used the national day to celebrate their own communities and to honor their hometown veterans; but elsewhere, the revival of republican sentiment clashed sharply with imperial attitudes."--Jacket
