Les maires du Morbihan (1929-1959)

Christophe Rivière
p. 135-184

Abstracts

The study of the mayors of the departement of Morbihan (Brittany) over the period spanning the 1930s until the late 1950s – a period imbued with major historical landmarks – triggers off a reflection on the impact of historical events on local politics. The dynamic of the Popular Front, the purges of the National Revolution implemented by the Vichy government followed by the purges of the Liberation unquestionably shaped the era and determined the choice of local councillors. However, what best characterizes the mayors of Morbihan, notwithstanding a few changes, is their stability.
