The French socialists and tripartisme, 1944-1947 by Bruce Desmond Graham( Book )

27 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is concerned with a period of post-war economic recovery and political change when Socialists, Communists, Christian Democrats, and - until January 1946 - General de Gaulle were forced to work together to carry out basic reforms and draw up the Constitution of the Fourth French Republic. The alliance forged in the Resistance during the war became an alliance subject to political stresses and strains in which the Socialists were the mediators between, on the one hand, the Christian Democrats and the Communists, and, on the other, General de Gaulle. In an alliance government, conflict of party ideas and ideals seems inevitable. The Socialist leaders were convinced that parliamentary democracy would survive in France only if a regime of monolithic parties, bound together in firm alliances, were to provide the basis of stable government. The price they paid was heavy: a loss of internal stability and confidence in their organization and repudiation of the leadership that had guided the party through the ordeal of resistance against the Germans and through political reconstruction. Leon Blum, leader of the pre-war Popular Front, and Daniel Mayer tried to persuade the party of the necessity to revise its doctrine in order to command liberal middle-class support. They failed, and were succeeded by Guy Mollet. But he was soon forced to return to the Dolicies they had laid down
Hindu nationalism and Indian politics : the origins and development of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh by Bruce Desmond Graham( Book )

24 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive and perceptive study of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh through the first two decades of its history from 1951. The Bharatiya Jana Sangh was the most robust of the first generation of Hindu nationalist parties in modern Indian politics and Bruce Graham examines why the party failed to establish itself as the party of the numerically dominant Hindu community. The author explains the relatively limited appeal of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh in terms of the restrictive scope of its founding doctrines; the limitations of
Choice and democratic order : the French Socialist Party, 1937-1950 by Bruce Desmond Graham( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Choice and Democratic Order applies theories of group conflicts within political parties in a discussion of the internal politics of the French Socialist Party (SFIO) from the late 1930s to the 1940s. Having analysed the formal and informal structure of the party in 1937, Professor Graham gives a detailed account of the clash which took place between the leadership and two dissenting groups, the Gauche Revolutionnaire and the Bataille Socialiste, prior to the Royan Congress of June 1938. This conflict is compared with that which occurred in the post-war party during 1946, when Guy Mollet led a successful revolt against the party leaders and became General Secretary of the organization after the 38th National Congress. Mollet began with the intention of preserving the existing alliance with the Communists, but as the latter moved into opposition he accepted the necessity of the centre alliance, the so-called 'Third Force' in French politics. Choice and Democratic Order provides much important new information on a confused but compelling episode in modern French history, and will appeal to both historians and political scientists. Professor Graham emphasizes the continuities between the pre- and post-war periods, and his chosen approach enables the reader to observe major figures like Leon Blum and Guy Mollet working within the complex party structures of French socialism
