History of the French Senate Volume 2 the 4th and 5th Republics 1946-2004
This two-part study uncovers the French Senate and examines its evolution from keystone of the compromise that created the Republic in 1875 to its consecration as the chambre de la decentralisation in 2003. Volume One examines the place of the Senate in the Third Republic, from its uncertain beginnings to its presence at the forefront of political life in the 1930s. Volume Two traces the unlikely recovery of the upper chamber in 1946, its `restoration' in 1958 and its rollercoaster relationship with government and the lower house since then.
