Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book Police and Politics in Marseille, 1936-1945 The book deals with the study of the grass roots of the Police and their interactions than of the act of policing per se. It is concerned almost exclusively with the Police forces of the Ministry of the Interior, and forces such as the Gendarmerie, Milice or Milices Patriotiques are dealt with only indirectly in their rivalry with the Police. In order to convey satisfactorily the dynamism within this time-span and to avoid confusions and anachronisms, the book attempts to pay heed to the chronological evolution of the period. It is presented thematically but in a way which broadly respects the chronological context of the period.
