Socialist and communist networks and representatives in Brittany: comparisons and reflections (1920-1989)
Francois Prigent, pages -

Abstract

During the twentieth century, the region of Brittany has been characterised by the emergence and consolidation of red subcultures and counter-societies, led both by socialists and communists.  Though Brittany may appear peripheral in relation to the centre of the parties which emerged from the workers’ movement, in fact the presence of socialists and communists in this region extended well beyond party boundaries the article explores the way they were active across various social, trade union and local political networks. The article offers a comparison between the forms of implantation of the French section of the Workers’ International (SFIO) and French Communist Party (PCF) and the cycles in which they took place, taking into account the manner in which these militant identities confronted each other. The paper considers the networks of socialist and communist representatives so as to bring out the plurality of identities present in red Brittany.
