about

Gaffney analyzes how de Gaulle came to power in 1958 and how the focus on an exceptional individual meant that he was able to confer a particular style of leadership on the Fifth Republic. The five Presidents who came after him have each capitalized on their own political 'persona.' Including a new preface to the paperback edition.
