Les notables et les forces politiques de droite en Bretagne dans les années 1930

Abstracts

The notables and the rightist political forces in Brittany in the thirties Seen from the outside, Brittany often shows the image of a rightist area, whereas the political reality is more complex. In the thirties however the notables and the political forces of the right system are meant to organise themselves in modem arties in order to channel better the discontent of the rural population during the great depression. These rightist parties (Fédération républicaine – URD) are structured around their deputies against the leftist parties in the early thirties including the lay centrists (Alliance démocratique) and the Chrétiens democrates (PDP). It’s necessary not to let the agitation of the weakly rooted leagues of the extreme right (Jeunesses patriotes, Croix-de-Feu) and meanly the dorgérisme that is favoured by numerous notables, then the PSF, become out of hand. This breton right gets tough with the Front populaire often relying on the support of newcomers. From 1936 until 1938, reclassifyings are made in a right-left polarisation which weakens the centrist elements.
