Liberalism and Social Reform : Industrial Growth and Progressiste Politics in France, 1880-1914

£23.99

Product description

An unmarked copy of this scholarly study of late 19th/early 20th century French industrial development and the political context.

Red cloth, gilt; very slight shelfwear. No dustwrapper. Faint pencil price erasure top ffep. Otherwise internally unmarked. 226 pp.

This book examines the heroic spirit of French industrial capitalism prior to World War I, and the role certain industrialists played in ensuring the success and stability of the country's economic and political order. It focuses in particular on the success of innovative manufacturers in France's chief industrial centers, the Nord, Loire, and Lorraine, where failing industrialists were saved through the introduction of new manufacturing techniques. It was only when Socialists abandoned revolutionary aims that they were able to successfully compete against their IprogressisteR rivals. Democratic politics forced the evolution of political life away from confrontation between capitalist and anti-capitalist parties.
