The French Communist Party as an object of political science
The PCF has nurtured abundant academic research in contemporary history, sociology and political science.

Cross stories of French and Italian Communism
Cross-histories of Italian and French Communism
The defence of the 1937 exhibition was one of the battles led by the French Communist Party from July 1936 to January 1938. Paul Vaillant-Couturier, Parisien rooted in the suburbs of Paris and interlocutor of intellectuals since 1932, has played a key role in the process, thanks to the combination o...
Being communist in Algeria in the 1920s and 1930s
When I started, two years ago, research into the Algerian Communist Party, it became clear to me that historiography had, so far, essentially developed a political history of the Communist movement in Algeria and that it could then be interesting to apply to develop a more social history. At that ti...
Cross-eyes, interested views
The CPF has produced an interesting speech on the second Spanish Republic with biased historical references. We should not forget, however, that the communist press was the main source of information for a large part of the French population, who was indoctrinated using simple and manichean language...
In this article, Mr Beylin is interested in the right of the victims of Stalinism to speak in former communist countries. It focuses above all on ideologies which use Stalinism as a vehicle of their own messages, ideologies which transform ‘historical’ Stalinism, a set of real phenomena in concrete...

100 years ago a truly popular party was born 100 years ago a truly popular party: Development and decline of French Communism
As soon as it lives in December 1920, the French Communist Party claimed a unique place in the hexagonal political landscape: that of popular formation alone, led by people of the people to serve the people’s interests. At a time when the gap between leadership and laborious classes seems deeper tha...
The French Communist Party and Sport
Physical and sporting activities are often seen as an apolitical issue that transcends partisan divisions.

Washington's attitude towards eurocommunism in France and Italy, 1974-1981
Eurocommunism refers to a trend among West European communist parties that aimed at promoting a communism compatible with Western-style democracy. It entailed embracing democratic "bourgeois" values, criticizing the Soviet model and fostering political coalitions with long-despised parties. French c...
French internment camps (1938-1946)
From the beginnings in February 1939, to the closing of the last camp, in May 1946, I estimate that there were 600,000 internees in around 200 centres, not for offences or crimes which they would have made but for the potential danger that they would represent for the State and/or the society. Inter...

Working struggles and the emergence of communism in Argenteuil (1900s — 1950s)
As a key element of marxist and revolutionary thinking, the concept of ‘fighting classes’, about the confrontation of two antagonistic social classes, takes on particular value for the study of labour struggles. Indeed, the primary framework of the class clash becomes the place of production, the ce...
SNECMA Works Council under the Fourth Republic or Communist Hegemony in the test
The word “Communism” overlaps an impressive number of meanings for the historian of the labour movement.
