About this book


This study of the 1995 French presidential election explains why Jacques Chirac was elected the fifth President of the Fifth French Republic; it also places Chirac's election in the context of some of the more longstanding issues and debates in contemporary French politics, examining the Fifth Republic's institutional structures, the behaviour of its political parties, the attitudes of its citizens and the nature of its governance.
