Emile Chabal's New Book on A Divided Republic

I review it here.

excellent paper, congratulations! You suggest that the pro-civil-society move within the French society (the "liberal" move in Chabal's terms, as in the UK party-political vocabulary) would deserve additional analysis and insight – the kind of insight the book brings re "neo-Republicanism". I fully share this view. To make it short, I think that the French are overwhelmingly "liberal" but their opinions regarding politics are overwhelmingly "neo-Republican". But this paradoxical way of thinking would actually require much more thinking and insight.
