Summary
  • Sarkozy came to power promising radical political and social change while simultaneously developing a presidential persona that melded the public and the personal under the glare of media attention, unparalleled in the French Fifth Republic. This volume provides a detailed analysis of the fit between his ambitions and the outcomes of his presidency.
  • Professor Raymond has brought together a range of scholars to examine the nature and legacy of Nicolas Sarkozy's five-year presidency (2007-2012). The study offers the reader a penetrating analysis of developments in a range of policy areas - Europe, Africa, diversity, pension reform, and culture. Several chapters also put Sarkozy's presidency in political, historical, and theoretical perspective. Given Sarkozy's unpopularity while President, many commentators saw his term as an aberration from a presidential norm. This book shows that, on the contrary, his presidency had a significant and consequent impact upon the changing nature of the presidency and upon French politics in general.' - John Gaffney, Professor of Politics and Co-Director of the Aston Centre for Europe, Aston University, UK

Summary expansion
From his beginnings as a figure on the political stage, Nicolas Sarkozy failed to conform to traditional expectations, either in his personality or a political actions. Unlike previous Presidents such Jacques Chirac or Francois Mitterrand, who underlined their attachment to their rural origins, Sarkozy was the son of a Hungarian immigrant who was brought up in a single-parent household. In contrast to Presidents like Chirac and Valery Giscard d'Estaing, who were archetypal products of the Ecole Nationale d'Administration, or Georges Pompidou and Mitterrand who were pressed from the classic intellectual mould of the French university system, Sarkozy qualified modestly as a lawyer. It is no surprise therefore that Sarkozy should have portrayed himself as the man of 'rupture'. In this collection, a host of expert contributors analyse and discuss the Presidency of Nicolas Sarkozy, how he differed from his antecedents and the legacy that his tenure had on French society and political structures. This volume is perfect for anyone interested in contemporary French politics
