Alexandre Ribot et la République modérée : formation et ascension d'un homme politique libéral (1858-1895)

Abstract : Despite a very impressive curriculum vitae (a parliamentarian for more than forty-four years, eleven times a minister and five times the president of the Council), one cannot but recognize that Alexandre Ribot (1842-1923) has received little attention from historians and has almost disappeared from collective memory. This raises questions, especially given the fact that the sources related to him, including a very rich set of private records, are quite abundant. Though our inquiry only covers a certain phase of Alexandre Ribot’s long career (1858-1895), it however aims at going beyond the strict biographical framework to tackle the political structures of the early Third Republic so as to identify their dynamics, embedded within different timeframes.By focusing on Alexandre Ribot’s building up as a politician and on his rise to power, this research aims at analysing his career-path while integrating it within the context of the establishment of the French Republican model. It thus makes a contribution to different ongoing historiographical initiatives regarding the “world of the Third Republic” (G. and S. Berstein), such as the working of “absolute parliamentarianism” (Carré de Malberg), the professionalization of political staff or the influence of liberalism and of the Liberals in the setting up of the regime.
