Violence and Conflict in the Politics and Society of Modern France
|Author: ||Windebank, Jan and
Renate Günther, editors|
Interdisciplinary in nature, these essays analyse the role of violence in modern French political history, early feminist theory on revolutionary violence, the rejection of the state by brigands and modern-day terrorists, the tactics of protest groups, conflict in industrial relations, police violence, colonial repression and insurrection, racial tensions and violence, violence against women, and the responses of the French education system to an increasingly violent society. This book is the first to address the full range of social and political manifestations of violence in modern France.
