Much more important to the nature of pre–Fifth Republic ethnopolitics than institutional arrangements was the broader sociopolitical environment in which ethnoregionalists functioned. Especially during democratic regimes, French politics has been historically shaped by the vast number of political associations that have divided French society horizontally (provincialism) and vertically (class, religion, ideological differences) into small and politically unproductive subcultures. Thus France has often served as the model for the “continental” style of politics—a form involving a highly segmented society, a fragmented set of political values, and a tendency for a high level of conflict within the framework of a very general political consensus.
32 Still, historically France’s traditionally fragmented, nonparticipatory political culture explains much of the traditional political weakness of France’s ethnopolitical minorities. Ethnopolitical communities, like all political groups, were hard-pressed to mobilize for action in this setting.
To a great extent these rivers radiate outward from France’s center to its periphery like the spokes of a wheel running from hub to rim, and thus connected Paris effectively with the provinces and abetted the political integration of the realm under a single, centralized political and administrative structure. At the same time, they rarely connected the peoples in France’s diverse provinces with one another. The resultant, centralized political system assured that the state’s dominant culture would overshadow all others, but it never completely overwhelmed those of the periphery.
