Rezensionen
"This work stands up as a valuable and exhaustively researched addition to the history of the Second Republic. It sheds new light on the thoughts and motivations of conservatives at the heart of the regime and is a great addition and corrective to existing texts that tend to focus on republican and socialist personalities, experiences and opinions." (W. Jack Rhoden, French History, Vol. 31 (4), December, 2017)

"Guyver ... provides an excellent, comprehensive, updated account that clearly reflects decades of Second Republic immersion. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and faculty." (R. J. Goldstein, Choice, Vol. 54 (10), June, 2017)
