Mémoires d’ex : Du passé, faisons table rase

Mosco Boucault

(1956-1990) Compared to Maurice Thorez or Waldek Rochet, the new secretary-general Georges Marchais is a “young proletarian Bel-Ami”. With his mentor, Jean Kanapa, graduate of the elite Ecole Normale Supérieure[GG1] , he is determined to put some life into the Party, modernise it. He goes after the media, the Union de la Gauche and breaks with the sacrosanct concept of the “dictatorship of the proletariat”.
