Historians of the workers' movement and of socialism, regardless of their ideological and methodological orientation, are in complete agreement on one point: the accounts of the congresses of the socialist parties represent a major and indispensable mine of information. The debates and deliberations of leaders at the congresses provide an excellent overview of the convoluted developments of the movement and permit an in-depth analysis of the collective mentality of the history of the socialist movement and of the social and political history of the period. This collection contains the documents of all of the socialist congresses from the first workers‘ congress in Paris in 1876 to the second session of the Eleventh National Congress of the SFIO just two weeks before the outbreak of World War I.

Congresses included:

  • Congres Ouvrier de France
  • Congres Ouvrier Socialiste de France
  • Congres Ouvrier Socialiste de Marseille
  • Congres national ouvrier socialiste
  • Congres socialiste national ouvrier de Bordeaux
