October Issue of Origins, "Socialism Takes Over France, Again?" by Dr. Alice Conklin
Origins: Current Events in Historical Perspective has published its October issue featuring Dr. Alice Conklin of OSU. Her article, "Socialism Takes Over France, Again?" examines the historical roots of the recent rise of the socialist party in France. Rather than an extreme shift to “socialism,” she argues, French politics in the post-WWII era have been marked by a broad consensus across party lines over social policy and the basic architecture of the French welfare state.
