Between Marxism and Anarchism by K. Steven Vincent
Book DescriptionHere is the first scholarly study of the life and thought of Benoit Malon (1841-1893), the most persuasive and visible spokesman for reformist socialism during the early years of the French Third Republic. Active in the generation of the French Left that came of age under the Second Empire, Malon was a prominent member of the First International in Paris and later joined the Paris Commune. As a result, he was forced into exile in Switzerland and Italy during the 1870s, where he became entangled in the struggles within the International. Malon attempted to steer a course between Marxist authoritarianism and anarchist utopianism, which he continued on his return to France in 1880. Vincent analyzes Malon's role as activist, editor, and author, arguing that Malon drew on a strong tradition of left-wing French republicanism. In his mature works, Malon articulated a socialism that emphasized broad moral and socioeconomic reform and advocated parliamentary rule as the appropriate source of national sovereignty. In helping the republican socialist Left shed its revolutionary associations, he pointed the way for later reformist socialists from Jean Jaures to Francois Mitterrand.

Benjamin Constant and the Birth of French Liberalism, Paperback (February 2013)» View all books by K. Steven Vincent
A different approach to French liberalism which, rather than beginning with an a priori definition of liberalism, focuses on the political thought of Benjamin Constant and Germaine de Stael, to advance a new interpretation of the timing and character of French (and more broadly European) liberalism.
