This is an up-to-date political history of the French Fifth Republic, a regime whose obituary has been written several times over, but which stubbornly refuses to die. Adopting a chronological framework, the book examines how the regime emerged out of the chaos of the Algerian crisis and how its political evolution has been very different from that envisaged by de Gaulle. Although politics take center stage, attention is also paid to underlying social and economic developments, together with France's international standing both within Europe and the world.
