John Hellman describes the rise and fall of the Ecole Nationale des Cadres, set up after the defeat of France in 1940 to train an elite drawn from the young intelligentsia as part of a larger effort to transform the nation. Focusing on the social, philosophical and psychological concepts propounded by the staff of the school, Hellman shows that the Ecole inspired French youth from very different backgrounds to abandon the democratic tradition in favour of a new anti-liberal conservative tradition. This second edition updates the study with new material about the Vichy regime, including former president Mitterand's connection with the Uriage group. There is a new chapter that shows how successfully public memory in France has been managed since the war.
