Le libéralisme caméléon : Les libéraux sous le Second Empire (1848-1870)

Abstract : What does "liberal" mean? The answer is less obvious than it seems. Liberalism feeds on ambiguities, paradoxes, and defies political labels. Between history and sociology, this book studies the political and intellectual itinerary of liberals after the revolution of 1848. In the effervescent period of the 1860s, personalities such as Émile Ollivier, Anatole Prévost-Paradol, and Édouard Laboulaye worked to create a "liberal party" that would reshuffle the political cards. In the wake of Tocqueville, they imagined the conditions of a liberal government in a democracy, which would accommodate both the monarchy and the republic. New liberalism is emerging.
