L’antiparlementarisme dans un parti bien représenté au Reichstag, la social-démocratie

Abstract : Although from its beginnings the Social Democratic Party successfully sent members to the Reichstag, it was also subject to conflicts about parliamentary work. These dissensions revolved as much around the very principle of parliamentarism as around practical questions concerning the degree of Socialists’ involvement in Parliament and the weight given to the parliamentarian faction within the party. The purpose of this article is to compare the SPD’s position in its early years when some leaders displayed strong antiparliamentarian standpoints with its position twenty years later, when a minority faction criticized the same leaders for being electoralist. In fact, the SPD, which showed contempt for Parliamentary work, actually gained strength for decades through successive elections, notably those for the Reichstag, in which they acquired both an audience and new members.
