Using ethnographic field data from the Larzac plateau in Southern France, Alexander and Sonia Alland document one of the longest and most successful popular protests in modern French history-the Larzac struggle. More than a record of the events, the book describes the transformation of a rural society far removed from the political center into a symbol of left-wing action for France and the world. This personal account will be of particular interest to anthropologists and historians of contemporary France and Europe. Students of nonviolence, protest and social movements and of community politics will also find this a challenging and enlightening book.
