Le Gaullisme

By Michel and Jean-Louis Debré

A brief, admiring evocation of the substance of Gaullism and its implementation by the General in power. The themes are familiar: a certain idea of French grandeur, independence, and moral mission in the world. The rhetoric remains impressive and, given Michel Debré's place in the world of Gaullism, the survey is authoritative and politically significant.
