The French National Front Summary


The French National Front: The Extremist Challenge To Democracy by Harvey G. Simmons

During the past few decades, extreme-right political parties have won increasing support throughout Europe, and the largest and most sophisticated of them is the French National Front. Led by Jean-Marie Le Pen, the Front is now the third most important political force in France, behind the mainstream right and the socialists. This book explores its rise. Beginning with a political history of the extreme right from 1945 to 1995, the book traces links between Le Pen and French neo-fascist and extreme-right organizations of the 1950s and 1960s, and concludes with analyses of the Front's anti-Semitism, racism, organization, ideology, language, electorate, and views on women. The author argues that the Front is not a party like any other, but a major threat to French democracy.
