A discussion of the role and place of the intellectual in 20th-century French society. Spanning a range of disciplines, the essays are for the most part written by eminent French scholars and are intended to make available to the English-speaking reader a growing body of research which seeks to explore the ethical and historical issues raised by the prominence of the intellectual in politics since the Dreyfus Affair. An introductory chapter provides a general overview of the subject, whilst the volume concludes with an examination of the contrasting and complementary roles of the French and British intellectual. Jeremy Jennings is also the author of "Georges Sorel: The Character and Development of His Thought" and "Syndicalism in France: A Study of Ideas", and of articles in "The Historical Journal", "History of Political Thought", "Political Studies", "Journal of Contemporary History" and the "European History Quarterly".
