Example text

He first met Moulin in 1925, when he was changing his political opinions enough to stand as an official Radical candidate. Under these colours he secured his first electoral success. Cot wrote thirty years later that Moulin then was a ‘radical of the left’ with opinions ‘very close to mine’. 23 Pierre Cot was a significant figure in French politics from the 1930s to the 1950s. His political career saw extraordinary fluctuations, from distinguished service in the Great War and a position close to pacifism, to very controversial high ministerial office in the 1930s, developing after wartime exile in the United States into close association with Communism.

This always involved working closely with other groups on the left, especially the Socialists at that time, and later with the Communists. When they first met, they were both strong supporters of the League of Nations and of the policies set out in the so-called triptych espoused by Aristide Briand of ‘security, arbitration and disarmament’. Similar policies were advocated by most of the moderate left at the time, including for example by Ramsay MacDonald in Britain. In 1930, Cot wanted France to give a lead in disarmament through peace agreements ‘more juridical than mystical’, with sanctions enforcing arms control.

When the SFIO split in December, the Department’s Socialist deputy Édouard Barthe remained firmly on the side of Blum and the ‘reformists’. With the right-wing ‘Bloc National’ in the ascendancy on a national level, progressive radicals like 22 Jean Moulin, 1899–1943 Louis Lafferre were inevitably pushed closer to the Socialists. This unity on the left characterised politics in Hérault over the following years, where a strongly republican tradition could only succeed if it brought Radicals and Socialists more closely together than in many other parts of France.
