The Political Leader and his Heritage

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


An attempt will be made in this chapter to appraise the personal contribution of François Mitterrand to French politics, with special reference to the period 1981-1995. The objective of this chapter is not merely to appraise Mitterrand’s personal and policy contribution to the Fifth Republic, however, but also to address the issue of whether Mitterrand left a legacy, and, if so, how best to understand that legacy.
