About this book

The demise of the French Communist Party (PCF) has been a recurrent feature of overviews of the Left in France for the past two decades, and yet the Communists survive. This study examines the factors that undermined the position of the PCF as the premier party of France, but also highlights the challenges that the party faces in a society disillusioned with politics, and the new strategies that it is developing in order to revive its fortunes.

Reviews

'Raymond's book thus complements the works of Jacques Fauvet, François Fejtö, Philippe Robrieux, Maxwell Adereth, Irwin Wall, Marc Lazar, and others. Scholars will find this book useful as a resource. Instructors of history and political science should also consider Raymond's book for use in the classroom, as he provides a sophisticated analysis of one of France's most complex political parties.' - W. Brian Newsome, H-France Review
