This pioneering work is the first biography for thirty-five years of one of France's foremost modern statesmen. Based on considerable new archival material, it sheds light on the origins of the First World War, the post-war peace settlement, inter-war international finance, as well as the feminist and animal rights movements in France at the beginning of the twentieth century. Raymond Poincaré is a subtle and fascinating portrait of this most prominent, yet most elusive, of European leaders.

From the Back Cover:

In a career which ran from the 1880s to the 1930s, one of the most formative periods of modern French history, Poincare held the principal offices of state. He played crucial roles in France's entry into the First World War, the organisation of the war effort, the peace settlement, the reparations question, the occupation of the Ruhr and the reorganisation of French finances in the 1920s. His life and work is surrounded by controversy and myth, from 'Poincare-la-guerre' to 'Poincare-le-franc', which this book dissects. Using a host of new archival material ranging from ministry of finance sources to private diaries, Professor Keiger explores the historiography of the president. Raymond Poincare is a subtle and fascinating portrait of one of the Third Republic's most prominent, yet most elusive, leaders - a politician who, somewhat surprisingly, held animal rights and feminism to be as important as party politics and public finance.
