About this product
- DescriptionIn interwar France, there was a growing sense that 'organization' was the solution to the nation's perceived social, ecomic and political ills. This book examines the roots of this idea in the industrial rationalization movement and its manifestations in areas as diverse as domestic organization and ecomic planning. In doing so, it shows how experts in fields ranging from engineering to the biological sciences shaped visions of a rational socio-ecomic order from the 1920s to Vichy and beyond. Jackie Clarke is senior lecturer in French Studies at the University of Glasgow. She is a specialist in the history of twentieth-century France with a particular interest in questions about work and consumption.
