This book discusses the issues and strategies which have characterized the environmental campaigns mounted against recent controversial infrastructure projects in France. Focusing on the changing nature of policymaking in the Fifth Republic as a key factor in the organization of each protest, Graeme Hayes asks why some protests succeed where others fail, and how we should understand the relationship between states and social movements in general.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'...well-documented, relying on official documents, organizational and periodical literature, and personal interviews.' - W. Safran, Choice

'This is an excellent scholarly contribution to the literature on the state and policy-making in the Fifth Republic and, as such, will undoubtedly appeal to specialists in French politics. However, it will also be of interest to those working in the broad field of policy analysis, especially in Western Europe, and to those conducting research on new social movements. The material is clearly structured, the arguments cogently made and the writing unfailingly lucid.' - Raymond Kuhn, Political Studies Review

'Haye's book provides an excellent, up-to-date analysis of the changing forms of environmental protest in France today from a political science-based perspective, and he also makes a useful contribution to debates on social movement theory. However, the real strength of this book lies in the light it sheds on local grassroots activism and the place of this activism within the French environmental movement as a whole.' - Sarah Waters, Modern & Contemporary France
