Intellectuals, Culture and Public Policy in France
Liverpool University Press

This book discusses the role of public intellectuals in France in the process of public policy formation. The historical focus of the book revolves around the Fifth Republic (from 1958 to the present) and the intellectuals in question are broadly positioned on the non-communist left. The book examines the roles, status and functions of public intellectuals in policy processes and then traces the effects that practical engagement in public policy processes exerts upon the thinking of these intellectuals.

Keywords:   public intellectuals, France, public policy, Fifth Republic, non-communist left, policy processes
