Le parti républicain dans les Vosges de 1870 à 1914

Abstract : In the period between 1871 and 1914 the Vosges can be described as a dynamic frontier area where the republican party represents a decisive political force. it is a stream of throught which gathered together all those who agreed with the ideas of the 1789 French revolution and turned into a structured organization at the beginning of the 20th century. after a brief description of the Vosges, this thesis analyses the evolution of the party, using mostly administrative and local newspapers sources. While the republican party had little influence during the Second Empire, after the 1870 war it was transformed into the dominant political force of the department, because it represented both resistance towards the enemy and national recovery. Mostly composed of moderates, it maintained its dominant position until the end of the 19th century. Its leaders, Jules Ferry and Jules Méline, were of national significance. At the end of the 19th century, its all importance was challenged by the surge of nationalism that accompanied the Dreyfus case. But a new republican party, the democratic republican party, emerged and managed to regain the department between 1906 and 1910. On the eve of the 1914 war representing a very moderate left wing, it exerted its political influence just like the republican party at the end of the 19th century.
