The Last Neoliberal: Macron and the Origins of France's Political Crisis
Foyalty 51

The Last Neoliberal: Macron and the Origins of France's Political Crisis (Paperback)

£16.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This book analyses the French political crisis, which has entered its most acute phase in more than thirty years with the break-up of traditional left and right social blocs. Governing parties have distanced themselves from the working classes, leaving behind on the one hand, craftsmen, shop owners and small entrepreneurs disappointed by the timidity of the reforms of the neoliberal right and, on the other hand, workers and employees hostile to the neoliberal and pro-European integration orientation of the Socialist Party.

The Presidency of Francois Hollande was less an anomaly than the definitive failure of attempts to reconcile the social base of the left with the so-called 'modernisation' of the French model. The project, based on the pursuit of neoliberal reforms, did not die with Hollande's failure; it was taken up and radicalised by his successor, Emmanuel Macron. This project needs a social base, the 'bourgeois bloc', designed to overcome the right/left divide by a new alliance between the middle and upper classes. But this, as we have seen recently on the streets of Paris and elsewhere, is a precarious process.
