This book traces the prepresidential career of the Socialist French president, covering his early years, his participation in the Vichy government, the Resistance and the governments of the Fourth Republic, and his 23 year march to the pinnacle of national power as leader of the French opposition during the first decades of the Fifth Republic. It is the story of a politician who built a solid majority starting from scratch in adopted political territory, a chaotic world of utopists, anarchists, purists, ideologues, and disciplined militants-in short, the French left. Baumann-Reynolds discusses the whats-Mitterrand's socialism, his republicanism, his Machiavellianism-and the hows-how he reacted to unpredictable events, how he took over the Socialist Party, and how he recuperated the communist vote. This is the first English-language biography by an American sensitive to the gaps in U.S. readers' knowledge of French politics.
